SSA Reports Record Summer Season Usage

Last week, the Cape Flyer released its ridership numbers for the season, reflecting the sixth consecutive year of increased usage.

Now, the Steamship Authority says it was a record-setting season for the ferry service as well.

The SSA says a record number of passenger vehicles and trucks used the ferry company from June through August.

 Despite a marked increase in mechanical problems SSA vessels have encountered, passenger traffic on the Martha‚Äôs Vineyard route is the third busiest for the year-to-date while the Nantucket route is enjoying its fifth best season.
