ABOUT THE ST. JOHN'S RIVER FERRY
THE ST. JOHN'S RIVER FERRY SERVICE is a vital part of Northeast Florida's local transportation system, connecting State Road A1A between Heckscher Drive and Mayport Village. The Jacksonville Port Authority has voted to stop supporting ferry operations. Discontinuing this service will have profound impacts on the First Coast's economic, transportation, and environmental interests. Help us continue the fight by:
- Signing our Petition to show lawmakers that the community supports continuation of the Ferry
- Writing your Councilors, Representatives, and Senators — not to mention Mayors and Governors! — to ask them to support the Ferry
- Spreading the word about the Ferry to all your friends and family! Anyone can sign the petition, no matter who or where they are!
