The Delaware River & Bay Authority, which owns and operates the Cape May-Lewes Ferry, is completing a Marine Master Plan process. The design and planning of the Ferry’s future took into consideration ferry ridership, crewing, amenities, level of service, seaworthiness, and costs. 

Last year, previous analysis was presented in a series of public meetings. Since those meetings, the Board has selected a 75-vehicle capacity ferry as the concept to serve the needs of the system into the future.  A fleet of four, 75-vehicle vessels would be able to accommodate current and future growth assumptions and meet the goals outlined in the Marine Master Plan.  Come and learn more about the plan for the future fleet and see drawings of the concept vessel at a public meeting held on Zoom February 23rd, 2023 at 6:00 PM.
