Daniel Island Ferry Demonstration Run

Daniel Island Dock
We joined about 40 other people on their way to work from Daniel Island to Downtown Charleston this morning, July 27.

The Ferry left a little after 7:30 am and took 20 minutes to run, dock to dock to the Maritime Center in Downtown Charleston.

Plans are being made to upgrade the dock and parking on Daniel Island.  A new, larger, all weather ferry has been ordered so that regular service can being in Spring 2019.

Mayor Techlinberg was among the passengers. Many representatives of local media were on board.

It was a great effort and thanks are due to the many community partners who participated in this morning's effort.

We ended our trip with a ride on the DASH bus to the office.
