Havn't been on the board in 2yrs.so was just wondering if the hand-pulled ferry (to go north) has been replaced by a bridge......If so what is the fee to go north & return??

The world has changed while you where gone Johnboy
Ferrys history and development has gone up the island like a brush fire. You can drive your golf cart almost all the way up but will need a new spine and kidneys when you get there.
cost for crossing the bridge vari for who you are, what your driving and where you live but still reasonable and hopefully funds going to pay for the bridge.
My life has gone from a Robinson Cursoe experience to being able to order a pizza delivered to my front door.

Johnboy, the cost to cross the bridge with a golf cart is normally $5.00 BZE each way. A monthly pass is $175.00 BZE. The bridge is the greatest thing that has happened. The next greatest thing that is going on now is the paving of front st and the road from Island Academy to Victoria House. If you visit often or have a second home here like we do, then you've got to LOVE it!!

We paid $150 BZ for a monthly permit back in January when we were living on the north side of the bridge.

We were going back and forth to town quite often.

Also, the bridge is free in the early evenings...I can't remember what time, but maybe someone else can help with that!

Elbert, my mistake......I pay $150 BZE for a monthly pass....we own a place in Bermuda Landing just north of the cut.
