Coming from Martha's Vineyard ... advice how to get there?

Has Quonset ferry been established? Looks like it was proposed this time last year but I'm not finding schedules, etc.

It's the only place I can find that MIGHT have arriving MV ferry in the same place as BI ferry.

If not, how far/easy/costly is it to get from Quonset to Pt Judith. Looks like 30 min by car but 1:30 by public transport (RIPTA??). Should I post in either of those forums?

Other ideas? Plane is possible (Cape Air services both?) but adds up fast $150 each person, each way is prohibitive for "quick trip" ...

PLEASE advise. This is for upcoming, passenger-only, summer travel.

Thank you!

Narragansett, Rhode...

The Quonset ferry has not yet happened.

They did add ferry service from Newport RI and Fall River MA to BI this year. Both are offered by Interstate Navigation.(blockisland ferry.com)

Cape Air would be a great solution as they fly to the island now.

Cape Air has service from one island to another through Green Airport in Providence. If you have several people you may want to charter a direct flight on New England Airlines1-800-243-2460.

If you take the ferry to Quonset you can take RIPTA bus service from Quonset to Point Judith. Use their trip planner at www.google.com/transit to find the quickest route. It looks to me like you could take the number 14 bus to the number 66 bus (Quonset to Salt Pond Plaza then Salt Pond Plaza to Block Island Ferry Dock).

Standard one way fare is listed as $2.00 per person.

You could take a taxi from Quonset to the ferry. I don't know the price, but you could call Wright's Oceanview Taxi (401) 596-8294 or Little Rest Livery (401) 294-1414

Best of luck with your plans.
