How many car barges are running between STT and STJ? I'm hoping it's still 2 that match the schedule listed on the VInow website?
@tedandmachele, those same two are running. During the last week there were routine Coast Guard inspections that resulted in "one barge only days" as the other barge underwent inspections; and in the last month some mechanical issues also resulted in some "one barge only days". When this happens the lines/wait is of course much longer.
Hey Richart. Definitely going there with a positive, I feel lucky attitude helps. ?
There is a facebook group for the car barge set up by a St. John resident that is helpful. Almost daily a few people post reports like "I went at 9am today and line was no problem", or "long line today, around to tennis courts", or "only 1 barge running today". It's the most real time reporting I've seen regarding the car barges. https://www.facebook.com/groups/1300284193364752/
Also, Love City Car Barge is good about posting on their FB page when they make last minute schedule changes. https://www.facebook.com/LoveCityCarFerries/.
