Prince William County is endorsing a study of a Potomac River commuter ferry between Woodbridge and Washington.The study found that a ferry could cut travel time significantly for some Washington commuters but it would cost local jurisdictions at least $20 million.

The estimated annual operating costs for the Woodbridge-to-Anacostia service would be about $4 million, with an average round-trip fare of $11.
