Staten Island Ferry Tour – WAITLIST
A highlight of this year’s FERRIES conference will be an in-person tour of the SSG Michael H. Ollis, sponsored by UES Seating. Attendees will get a guided tour of the vessel’s pilothouse, engineroom, and its passenger spaces.

NYCDOT will also allow guests to explore its full mission pilothouse simulator. Designed as a close reproduction of the Ollis Class pilothouse, the simulator features the same Furuno radars and Transas ECS units as the ferries.

A Q&A session will conclude the tour on the saloon deck of the ferry.
