The Lake Express Ferry to begin daily service on May 7 ⛴️
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) --- The Lake Express Ferry will launch its 2021 travel season on Friday, May 7 with four daily crossings on Lake Michigan between Milwaukee and Muskegon, Michigan.
Officials say the four-engine powered ship provides the most daily crossings of Lake Michigan and the fastest service with each trip taking only two-and-a-half hours.
“We’re hearing from travelers that they’re eager to get back to places and activities they missed last year,” said Aaron Schultz, senior vice president at Lake Express. “Early bookings have been very strong and in line with 2019 levels.”
Lake Express is following guidance from state and federal health agencies to maintain a safe travel environment with protocols in place. This includes completing a series of self-assessment questions prior to arriving on site, earing a mask, and following social distancing measures.
Officials say, travel specials this season include the return of Kids Ride Free for which kids under the age of 18 are able to ride free between June 17th and Sept. 6th when accompanied by a paying adult. Motorcycles Ride Free also returns for the spring and fall schedules. Normal motorcycle fares will be waived with a paid adult passenger fare between May 7 and June 16, as well as between Sept. 7 and Oct. 25.
