The Last Public Auto Ferry in Florida Jun 05, 2011
The last public auto Ferry in Florida is part of the scenic route A1A on the east coast of Florida. A1A is a must see when you are in Florida! The St John’s or Mayport Ferry transports cars, pedestrians & of course Old School motorcycles across the St. Johns River between the coastal Jacksonville neighborhoods of Mayport Village and Ft. George Island. I was headed home on A1A & not looking forward to going into Jacksonville to get across the St John’s. I saw the green A1A Ferry sign, I have been here before, stopped at the convince store across the street for a drink. Finished my drink went to get in line as I heard the very loud whistle of the Jean Ribault, built in 1996, 40 vehicles, 206 passengers, went & got in line. There seemed to be a mix of locals who said they use the Jean Ribault all the time as a time saver & tourists who say the sign & decided to give it a try. If you find yourself on A1A around Jacksonville and are looking for a scenic shortcut or just a break from driving try the St John’s or Mayport Ferry Cars-$5.00 Motorcycles-$3.00.
