A computer problem affected the Steamship Authority’s website Monday night, but is now back working as of 1:15 am Tuesday, according to an email from Sean Driscoll, SSA spokesman.

The website issue, which began at about 6:30 pm Monday, affected ticket sales and reservations.

This is the statement that was issued at the time of the outage: “The Steamship Authority is aware of an issue affecting its internet connectivity that has taken its website offline. We are working with Comcast to resolve the issue. Our ticket sellers are unable to process credit card transactions and reservations cannot be made or changed online. We apologize for the inconvenience and we hope to be back online shortly.”
