I plan on taking the Block Island Ferry out to Block Island tomorrow morning. I would like to bring my bike. Does anyone know anything about parking areas around the ferry? Where on the ferry will my bike go? Will it be secure?

Thanks in advance!

Does anyone know what it cost for long term parking in Point Judith? We are planning a trip to Block Island for a week.

Not sure long term. I know it is generally $20 a day to park.

It might be cheaper to take the car (I think transporting the car will be around $100).

If they can get a vehicle reservation (I know we used to book our July trip as far back as Jan/Feb), otherwise they'll have to wait on standby for both legs of the trip, which there is no guarantee. We've done standby (got there at 5am) because we wanted an earlier trip time than our assigned reservation time. (our vehicle is also open deck/with the trucks because of height & length, so I don't know if that helps us or hurts us.)

I'll have to ask my husband if he recalls what it cost to park for the week. We've left trailers at lots, but I don't know if the fees were the same.

Bikes are stored on the bottom deck where the vehicles are. I don't think I've ever seen anybody secure their bike to anything. It's a pretty casual and trusting atmosphere. I wouldn't leave my wallet on the seat though.

There is parking all around the ferry, you wont have any issues with that. The usual price is $10. Your bike goes on the bottom of the ferry with the rest of the cargo, and it is secure. There is an additional price to bring your bike though, so keep that in mind.
