[edit] The site

Gcferries.com is the website for the Gotham Ferry System, a division of Gotham's Department of Transportation , found from a rotating banner ad on Maidenavenuereport.com. Their motto is "Moving 8 Million People a Year."

The Gotham Ferry

The Gotham Ferry keeps its fair city on the move, with an annual total of 8 million people using the service. 28,000 passengers a day - not including weekend days - travel between the Sheal Terminal and Pettsburg Terminal. Service is provided 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The Gotham Ferry boasts reliability, with over 97 percent in on-time recorded trips.

The ferry is the only non-vehicular mode of transportation between Gotham and the mainland. Gotham City Transit operates and maintains the five vessel fleet as well as the Sheal Maritime Building and all floating dock building equipment.

The ferry can carry 36 cars and up to 4,200 passengers. Each ferry has a snack bar and two tourist decks where passengers can sit outside.

The Gotham Ferry is proudly authorized by the Gotham Department of Transportation to transport commuters to and from Gotham. However, many savvy citizens and tourists have also discovered that the great view and convenience of the ferry can make for a romantic outing! One guide book calls it "A peaceful, relaxing, and fuss-free journey."

A Few Ferry Facts

According to Glenn Barhyte's emails, Francis Notaro and Glenn Barhyte were supposed to meet on the lower deck of Liberty Ferry at 8pm. Shortly after 8pm EST, calling the system status hotline resulted in a message that service was disrupted on Liberty Ferry. Even though it can be inferred that a severe incident happened at that time, possibly involving Barhyte and Notaro, Barhyte later confirmed that Notaro simply did not show up.

After the countdown ended on Whysoserious.com/Overture, Gcferries.com was "Jokerized," along with nearly every other website in the game.
