Toronto Island ferry schedule reduced for rest of summer after collision with dock – Toronto

The number of ferries travelling between Toronto Island and the city will be reduced for the rest of the summer after a collision sent five passengers to hospital with minor injuries.

A spokesperson for the City of Toronto’s parks, forestry and recreation department said ferries between the Jack Layton Ferry Terminal and Toronto Island would “be running at a reduced passenger capacity while the Sam McBride ferry is out of service.”

Ferries will continue to run to all three Toronto Island destinations: Hanlan’s Point, Ward’s Island and Centre Island.

On Saturday afternoon, Toronto police reported a ferry had struck the dock at Jack Layton Ferry Terminal with reports of injuries.

“As a result of Saturday’s ferry docking incident, ferry service between the Jack Layton Ferry Terminal and Toronto Island will be operating on a modified schedule and passengers can expect much longer than usual wait times for the remainder of the summer,” the city said in a tweet.
