Green DOT's Staten Island Ferry (SIF) operations

In late 2016, DOT will begin converting all light fixtures in its ferry terminals to LEDs. In addition, the agency is planning to install shore power at its maintenance facility, so our ferries do not need to run their engines while being serviced. Finally, the agency is procuring three new ferry boats with cleaner EPA Tier 4 engines. These vessels will go into service in 2020 and 2021.
