Susquehanna water shuttle would link Lancaster, York counties by boat

As early as next summer, a public water shuttle could be carrying visitors across the Susquehanna River between Columbia and Long Level in York County.
If successful, the shuttle — probably using pontoon boats — could be expanded to transport visitors between Columbia and Wrightsville, and on a longer loop to include the Blue Rock Heritage Center in Washington Boro.

What a terrific and long overdue solution. Until a bridge (or two) is built, spanning from Columbia to Wrightsville, and capable of supporting traffic by automobile, a water shuttle is a must. The time, energy, and lives saved from people having to swim back and forth or falling through ice in the winter, is well worth it. A small dog powered sled for winter use should also be explored. Progress!!!

Hope they know how to navigate the river. Lots of rocks & gravel bars.
