Preserve the St. John's River Ferry Service

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. Discontinuing this service will have profound impacts on Jacksonville's economic, transportation, and environmental interests.


Letter to
The Jacksonville Port Authority Board of Directors
GOAL: To preserve the St. John's River Ferry Service until a long-term funding solution can be established.

ISSUE: 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. Discontinuing this service will have profound impacts on Jacksonville's economic, transportation, and environmental interests.

The following individual(s) signed this petition to preserve the St. John's River Ferry Service within the past 30 days. Given the arguments to retain ferry service, the volume of local businesses and residents supporting this action, and the potential impacts an action of this magnitude presents to the City of Jacksonville and the surrounding areas, we feel a decision to keep the St. John's River Ferry Service in operation is in the best interest of all parties.

Sincerely,
