Algiers and Chalmette Ferries Back in Service


Ferry commuters can breathe a sigh of relief after yesterday’s suspension of the Canal St.-Algiers connection. As of July 31 at 1:25pm, the West Bank-Downtown route is back in service, according to the LADOTD. The Chalmette ferry, St. John, is also operating on its normal routine after undergoing repairs. 

 

The St. John ferry was deemed out of commission due to mechanical issues, and the LADOTD sent the Algiers ferry Levy to Da' Parish as a substitute. Now that the St. John's steering issues have been turned around, both locations are up and running. 

 

Although the latest news offers travelers temporary transport, the long term future of the ferries still hangs in the balance. The state will drop funding funding soon, but locals could take over if the Regional Transit Authority agrees to assume operations.

 

Last week, the RTA proposed an increase of fares to $2 one-way. In the meantme, the ferry was already operating on reduced hours, ending service as early as 6:30 p.m.

 

Ferry fans can stay in tune by following the motor vessel on Twitter (@Canal_Ferry), or on the LADOTD's website
