Our Island Line Bike Ferry shattered all existing records of passengers this past Labor Day weekend 2016! Check out the crowds on this gorgeous weekend, enjoying the sunshine while they waited to cross the Cut. We carried 1,037 people and bikes across The Cut over the three gorgeous bluebird days, chalking up a brand-new one day record on Sunday of 397 riders. The 20-passenger ferry ran non-stop all afternoon each day.
At the Local Motion Bike Ferry, kids come in all different shapes and sizes. Sometimes the kids are grown up, and out on a final ride before their parents drop them off at college. Other times they’re little ones, slathered in sunscreen and found securely in a tag-a-long. This past Friday, August 26th, one special kid earned the title of the bike ferry’s 10,000th passenger in 2016, and we couldn’t have asked for a better recipient. What better way to begin our season wind-down?
As fall approaches we begin to reflect on all of the amazing adventures we were able to cram into our short New England summer. It is probably safe to say few families have more stories to tell about the summer of 2016 than the Lindfields of Maine. Take a moment to read their epic journey from Maine to DC and back and see their amazing photos. One of the highlights of their trip? The time they spent in northwest Vermont on the Island Line Trail and Local Motion's bike ferry!
