2. Five Borough Ferry
To ease the North-South connection between Astoria and South Brooklyn, and add new connections to Rockaway and the Bronx, another proposed transit proposal under De Blasio‘s administration is a city-wide ferry system that will connect all five boroughs. Currently, although there are ferries running along Hudson River and East River, but can be cost prohibitive for some at $4/ride. If all goes to plan, the first part of the proposal will be up and running in 2017, and will provide transfers between subway, bus and ferry.
