Service levels will be increased throughout the spring and summer of 2024. The spring and summer schedule (effective May 21 to September 3) can be found on the “Q to Q Ferry Schedule” section of the website, while the fall and winter schedule (effective September 4) is listed below. Please note that the 2025 schedule has not yet been confirmed and service levels will continue to be evaluated and be offered based on demand and resources.


  • Leaving Quayside at 7:00 am and every 30 minutes until 7:30 pm
  • Leaving Queensborough at 7:15 am and every 30 minutes until 7:45 pm


  • Leaving Quayside at 10:00 am and every 30 minutes until 7:30 pm (8:30 pm on Saturdays)
  • Leaving Queensborough at 10:15 am and every 30 minutes until 7:45 pm (8:45 pm on Saturdays)

Why aren’t summer levels kept for the entire year?

Reduced Demand: Demand for the Q to Q Ferry is lower in the fall and winter months than in the spring and summer. By maintained reduced schedule during the months when demand tends to be lower, we will be able to offer a more fulsome schedule in the months when demand is greater.

Reduced Revenue: As a result of reduced demand for the service, the ferry is generating less than anticipated revenue. In addition, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many of the third-party partnerships and sponsorship opportunities previously anticipated have been put on hold, again resulting in less revenue.

To best meet the needs of the community while working within the hours available from the approved budget, the current schedule is based on reviews of monthly ridership data as well as feedback from a community survey. Additional information about the survey can be found here.
