Days after a passenger ramp terrifyingly collapsed at the East River Ferry’s Greenpoint Terminal, a temporary shuttle bus service between Greenpoint and Williamsburg will fill the gap.
For better or worse, the bus, which will run for at least two weeks while the Greenpoint ferry stop is out of service, will be operated by BillyBey, which also operates the East River Ferry — but we’re guessing it has got its act together by now. You could always take the B32 bus, which basically travels along the same route, but we all know how reliable that is.
Here’s the shuttle bus schedule, courtesy of State Senator Daniel Squadron. The free rides start tomorrow.
