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.
