The Rockaway Ferry will keep running for awhile longer.
Mayor de Blasio says a deal was worked out to fund the service until May, with an option to extend it through August.
Under the extension plan, the cost of a single ride will go up to $3.50 from $2.
The fare hike will take effect on February 1.
The number of ferry departures during the morning and evening rush will remain the same.
Riders who spoke with NY1 Tuesday morning say they have come to enjoy the service.
"Definitely a lot more convenient, and it's much quicker and because of working on lower Wall Street it shaves off about 40 minutes off of my commute time," said one ferry rider.
"I love it, it's a quicker commute than the A train. Coming from Rockaway it's more comfortable I think it's a great thing for Rockaway," said another ferry rider.
The service originally began after Hurricane Sandy shut down subway service to the Rockaways for seven months.
