Halifax Fast Ferry

With recent population growth and resultant traffic congestion, as well as a desire to go “green” the idea for a fast ferry between downtown Halifax and Bedford has been revived with several in depth analyses in which we participated, one with WSP and the other with Lengeek Vessel Engineering. The first was an in-depth analysis of the concept which fed into the city’s Integrated Mobility Strategy and the other an examination of potential vessel designs and propulsion systems. James Frost also co-authored a chapter on urban ferry systems for The Routledge Handbook of Public Transport.
