Timeline

We are targeting the delivery of the e-ferry to be introduced while the L-Train is shutdown, but it won’t be ready until a few months after April 2019. However, the e-ferry is just one of the SW/TCH e-commuting modes of transit, and we do plan to launch the rest of the SW/TCH service in time for April, to provide the first/last-mile connection for the existing East River NYC Ferry system. We’re starting with just one e-ferry as a proof of concept, and plan to start construction on the second immediately after the delivery of the first (to start operating 6 months after the first). Mobile app development will start in coordination with e-ferry construction. SW/TCH is working with capable partners and moving fast to make the e-mobility service a reality. As development continues, SW/TCH is committed to providing regular project updates.
