Staten Island Ferry

It's a little fuzzy, since I did it round trip from 4-5am, but it got me curious...

Approximately 20 million people take 33,000 trips on the ferry each year. On an average weekday, the ferry makes 104 trips shuttling 70,000 people back and forth across the harbour. Traveling at an operational speed of 16 knots, each 5.2-mile trip takes 25 minutes.
