The Rhode Island Fast Ferry will discontinue ferry service to and from Martha’s Vineyard on Friday afternoon, Aug. 26.

“Our last two departures from the Island will be at noon and 2 pm, Friday and we will board the ferry on a first-come first-serve basis,” Charles Donadio, president, said in an email to The Times late Thursday.

“We will continue to update our website throughout the storm and anticipate resuming ferry service sometime on Monday or Tuesday unless we encounter major damage to our facility in Rhode Island.”
