Pedestrians To Start Paying For Ferry Rides On Sunday
Posted February 19th, 2014 @ 9:33am

The company that has taken over operation of the Algiers and Chalmette ferries will begin collecting fares from pedestrians on Sunday.

The charge will be $2, one-way.

Service is being provided by Veolia Transportation, the French company that operates buses and streetcars for the RTA.

The state has agreed to provide a $5.5 million subsidy over the first two years.

Veolia has yet to reveal a timetable for restoring late-night and early morning service on the Algiers Point-Canal Street ferry.
