Coney Island Ferry Feasibility Study (2018)


Together with Hornblower, BJH completed a feasibility assessment of a new NYC Ferry route from Coney Island to other boroughs in New York City. The report analyzed the potential ridership demand of the route and determined the economic impacts from such a system. BJH studied multiple ferry landing sites, aggregating the demographics of the catchment areas and establishing modal choices to estimate trip generation, trip distribution, and ridership. This work contributed to building a case for the installation of a new ferry service between Coney Island and lower Manhattan, which was subsequently announced in January 2019 and will launch in 2021.
