Dear Neighbor,

Shelter Island Resident Discount Passenger Tokens are now available for sale at our office. Bags of 10 tokens will cost $15.00 to qualified residents. Residents will qualify if they have a Shelter Island address on their driver's license, pay Shelter Island Town property taxes, or hold a lease on a Shelter Island dwelling for 10 months or greater.

Shelter Island Resident Discount Tokens will be accepted in our turnstiles for foot passengers or for a passenger fare in automobiles. As the tokens will be sold at a discount, a round trip passenger fare in a vehicle will require two tokens for each passenger, with no money returned.

The new resident passenger fare was made possible by tax relief legislation introduced by Assemblyman Marc Alessi and Senator Ken LaValle, and signed by Governor David Paterson. We also thank Legislator Ed Romaine for sponsoring the passenger discount in the Suffolk County Legislature.

Thank you for riding North Ferry.
