Dockside parking: we are the only ferry that offers all dockside parking. Travel to any of the other ferries in Massachusetts and you could end up parking up to 12 miles away in an off-site lot and then have to hop on a bus to get to/from their ferry terminal.

Closest ferry to Airport & Amtrak:  don’t stress about your connections since you won’t have to drive through the City of Providence and then down Interstate 195 East where the traffic is always stop and go. Our dock is a quick drive away and traffic is never a concern.
