GOOD NEWS FOR MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE
Ferry commuters to Wall Street, besieged by blowback over the spreading-around-the-globe credit meltdown they helped create, will see a slight dip in the monthly fare charged by SeaStreak beginning tomorrow.
Assuming, of course, that there still is a Wall Street tomorrow.
A 40-trip book of tickets for rides between either Atlantic Highlands or Highlands and Pier 11 at the foot of Wall Street will cost $695 starting tomorrow, SeaStreak announced Friday. That’s down from the current $700, according to an email from company president James Barker.
Off-peak buyers of 40-trippers will also get the $5 drop, to $560. Both reductions are tied to the price of diesel fuel.
Riders who buy their tickets in blocks of 10 rides or fewer will see no change in the price.
The cheapest adult ride on SeaStreak is the off-peak round-trip ride, at $37.
