Fee said too high at Port Jefferson Ferry

Passengers on the Bridgeport-Port Jefferson ferry won't escape the Bridgeport Port Authority's passenger fee, but a federal judge ordered its reduction. Full Story

A round trip over the Memorial Day Weekend would cost a family of four just under $200 ($51 plus $14.75 per passenger over age 12.) This is obcene. I don't think a dollar or two is much of an issue compared to these prices. The ferry is a waste. I live five minutes from it and even with $4.00 plus gas, still take the long way around.

I don't know why a "Patchogue" address was auto generated. I'm in Setauket.

Agreed! The cost is cheaper to drive around then to take the ferry. You dont save time and you dont save money ! Not sure why they havent realized that yet -
I live out in Riverhead and still not worth taking the ferry !

Citizen 44: if gas goes to 8 or 9 dollars per gallon as you state, don't you think that the diesel fuel for the ferry would likewise go up? Just saying...
