Wednesday, August 18th, is a big day for NYC Ferry. It's new Soundview Route opens, bringing service to The Bronx for the first time. The Astoria Route, serving Roosevelt Island, is being adjusted at the same time.

"In an effort to provide more reliable service and a better experience for our riders, we revisited some of our schedules and made some modifications to the South Brooklyn and Astoria routes in order to reduce slip congestion and maximize transfer options for all our routes," a NYC Ferry source announced.

As we reported in March, the new routes open up new, easy to reach neighborhood venues for Roosevelt Islanders out to explore the city.

"Also, in anticipation of the Soundview and Lower East Side route launches (which will both stop at E. 34th Street), we are increasing the frequency of the midtown shuttle bus, starting on Wednesday, August 15th."

Midtown shuttles during morning peak periods will depart E. 34th St. every 11 minutes.
