Getting From Southeastern Connecticut to New York City just got a lot easier.
New London's City Council voted Monday night to approve a contract to begin weekend high-speed ferry service between Waterfront Park and Manhattan on a trial basis.
The Catamaran-type vessels will leave New York at 9 a.m. on those days, and depart New London at 7 p.m. They'll make the trip in less than three hours, and have a capacity of 405 passengers.
Same-day round trips would costs passengers $69, but round trips of more than two days would cost more, according to The Day.
