New mobile site gives real-time ferry updates
Are you headed to the Vineyard this long holiday weekend? Then bring your smartphone if you want the latest update on the ferry schedules.
The Steamship Authority, which oversees all ferry operations between the state's mainland and the islands of Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard, announced today that it has deployed a new mobile website that allows travelers to easily check on the status of arriving and departing ferries from their smartphones. The site, steamshipauthority.com, also lets travelers view cancellations and alerts, check parking information, and get directions to ferry terminals.
"At the Steamship Authority, we are constantly looking at ways to enhance our customers' overall experience." Steamship Authority general manager Wayne Lamson said in a press release. "The new mobile website will provide access to useful ferry information for passengers traveling to or from Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket."
