The Local Motion Bike Ferry

Local Motion is moving the Bike Ferry schedule to the fall to coincide with the Colchester Causeway reopening 

The Bike Ferry will open the 2020 season to celebrate the return of riders and walkers to the new and improved Colchester Causeway in early September. The Town of Colchester has informed us that the massive causeway reconstruction project is back on after a pandemic related interruption. They project a September 8th reopening. We will announce the details of our fall ferry schedule and the protocols that we put in place to assure our passengers that we are compliant with State and CDC guidelines. “We’re not giving up on the season,” offered Tom Clark, Director of Services at Local Motion. “Even if we only run a few weeks, we believe this will resonate with many as a welcome return to something something that people love.”  


2020 Schedule  

Anticipated Opening Day is scheduled for September 8th. 

We will confirm the daily schedule and hours as soon as we are certain of the opening day.

Check this website or Call (802)-861-2700 (option 2) for Ferry updates

*Schedule is subject to change due to weather and other circumstances beyond our control.

Fare Donations

Our fares are suggested donations. The ferry doesn't run on love alone...though we wish it did.  The service costs upwards of $190,000/year for over a hundred days of service -- and fares cover less than 60% of that. Thank you for your support.
