It would be amazing if they actually made the ferry affordable.

It would be amazing if they made the ferry's free. But who's going to pay for it? Who's going to provide the subsidy... Yvonne? There is a belief in Jersey City that only "free" parking is allowed to be subsidized.

For all of the ills of the PATH train is does transport nearly 300,000 people everyday and is probably the most efficient transportation system in the region given the volume of people it moves. i would rather see any available funding for subsidy be given to PATH to run more trains in offpeak periods. It can be two in the morning and the trains are as packed as during rush hour because they only run every 35 min. The Staten Island railroad does better than that and they carry a fraction of the population of PATH.
