The Northern Virginia Regional Commission (NVRC) is soliciting proposals from qualified transportation firms having experience with ferry transport and operations, including business case analysis, to develop a business case that will serve as the foundation for private investment in a fast ferry passenger transit service that would be designed to serve commuters and tourists, and that may eventually also provide freight options to the waterfront communities along the Anacostia, Potomac, and Occoquan Rivers. It is envisioned that the business case also may help justify the further investment of public funds in the project. Origin and destination locations would be in Northern Virginia, Maryland, and the District of Columbia. For this project, the NVRC is working in conjunction with impacted stakeholders in Virginia, Maryland, and the District of Columbia.
