SSA needs to fix this


To the Editor:

This letter was written to the Steamship Authority and Bonanza Bus Line.

We have been coming to Martha’s Vineyard for 40 years and have generally been pleased coming by bus and ferry.

There is one glaring anomaly, and that is a bus from South Station that arrives at Woods Hole at 3:45 pm, which is the same time the ferry leaves.

Surely this timetable could be adjusted so that passengers will be able to board the ferry later than 3:45 pm. The bus arrived today just as the ferry doors were closing, as has happened many times before. The next ferry, at 5 pm, is an unnecessarily long time to wait.

I am writing on behalf of many frustrated passengers. Please do something to fix this problem.
