JAMESTOWN-SCOTLAND FERRY TO RUN AT REDUCED CAPACITY: Pocahontas Out for Maintenance

 Jamestown-Scotland Ferry passengers are advised the fleet’s largest boat, the Pocahontas, will be taken out of service for maintenance on Tuesday, January 3, 2017, for approximately two weeks.

The Williamsburg and Surry vessels will continue to carry motorists across the James River using the normal ferry schedule. While the Pocahontas is in the shipyard, there will be a reduction in capacity of approximately 20 vehicles an hour for daily ferry operations. Drivers may experience minor delays and VDOT urges regular ferry passengers to build a few more minutes into their daily commute.
