Information @ a Glance

  • A ferry (or ferryboat) is a form of transportation, usually a boat, but sometimes a ship, used to carry (or ferry) primarily passengers, and sometimes vehicles and cargo as well, across a body of water.

  • Ferry designs depend on the length of the route, the passenger or vehicle capacity required, speed requirements and the water conditions the craft must deal with.

  • Ferries can provide an option where ground options are slow and crowded. Ferries can be a catalyst for development and redevelopment along the Region's growth needs, then it is imperative to work towards retaining and expanding the ferry network in the Region.

  • Ferries do not operate in isolation. A ferry is only one link in the intermodal transportation network. System designers should optimize the transportation system as a whole, rather than its individual components.

  • The investment proposal requires an integrated proposal of measures covering demand forecasting, vessel standards, infrastructure design, community engagement, legal and capacity building expertise.

  • The size, type and function of your vessel will determine the extent to which you need to address inspection procedures. Good managers will already have in place regimes of regular inspection of their vessel(s). This starts as simply as checking the engine on a daily basis before starting, and escalating to two or five year structural checks.

  • Water based transport is effective as generally speaking, operating costs of fuel are low and environmental pollution is lower than for corresponding volumes of movement by road, rail or air.

  • A major advantage is that the main infrastructure – the waterway – is often naturally available, which then has to be “trained”, maintained and upgraded.

  • In India, the main passenger movements by inland waterways that are viable are ferry operations across rivers (at numerous locations on all waterways), on short stretches along rivers and tourism based passenger traffic (in Goa, Kerala, Sunderbans and Northern regions).

  • In India, inland water transport on the Ganga may have provided among the earliest organized transport movements over significant distances, well before rail and road networks developed.

  • Traffic congestion is considered one of the main urban transportation problems with an estimated cost of about $100 billion annually in the US and comparable costs in other countries.

  • One of the biggest advantages India has is that Indian mentality and lifestyle is very adaptable to western lifestyle. India adapts and accepts ideas, culture and products from the west very easily.

  • Money is the highest barrier to entry of the ferry business. Historically, government grant programs, such as the $60 million allotted as part of the 2009 Economic Recovery Act, have gone to buy new ferryboats or improve existing ferry terminals.

  • Commuting time has an economic value to the individual. Studies have found that individuals are quite sensitive to time costs - especially those associated with walking or waiting.
