Fast Car Ferry Panel to Address WorkBoat Show

Monday, August 25, 2003
A panel featuring designers, shipbuilders and operators will discuss the emerging growth of Fast Ferry construction and current projects underway at the International WorkBoat Show. The paneled discussion will be the second of two free keynote presentations scheduled during the show and will take place at the Morial Convention Center, New Orleans, LA, Thursday, Dec. 4, from 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm. In an effort to relieve clogged highways and bad air in U.S. cities, officials are looking at water transit as an alternative form of transportation. In this keynote, panelists will discuss their involvement on specific projects including the San Francisco's Water Transit Authority plan to build 31 passenger ferries over 10 years, Lake Michigan's Lake Express car ferry, and Lake Erie's planned U.S./Canada services. "Our second keynote at the show is timely with the increased attention being paid to fast ferries in the U.S.," said David Krapf, editor of WorkBoat magazine. "As roadways in major metropolitan areas become more and more congested, interest in alternate modes of transportation such as ferries will only increase in the future."
