Only One Mother
by George Cooper
Hundreds of stars in the pretty sky,
Hundreds of shells on the shore together,
Hundreds of birds that go singing by,
Hundreds of lambs in the sunny weather.
Hundreds of dewdrops to greet the dawn,
Hundreds of bees in the purple clover,
Hundreds of butterflies on the lawn,
But only one mother the wide world over.
Wishing everyone a wonderful and safe Easter weekend. Below is our updated schedule for Easter Sunday and Easter Monday. Grand Vic will be running its regular schedule beginning at 6:15 AM on Good Friday. Our offices will be opened on Good Friday and Easter Monday; if you have any questions, feel free to contact us. Stay safe and be blessed!
The US Virgin Islands is a wonderful place to visit. As a Territory of the United States, American travelers can enjoy the no hassle, no passport necessary, ease of traveling. They can use their favorite airlines such as Delta, American, even Jet Blue and many others. Upon arrival, they don't have to worry about currency exchanges because the US Dollar is used. There are so many conveniences associated with traveling to the US Virgin Islands.
St. John, as one of the smaller US Virgin Islands, is even more secluded than the larger islands because it has no major airport. Thus, the only access to St. John is by sea. Here are some tips for traveling to St. John. If you have already experienced the uniqueness of this hidden gem, then feel free to share some tips of your own.
How To Find Out What We Are Doing? Sign Up for our Blog Posts!
Love City Car Ferries, Inc. is revamping the way it communicates with the general public. In the past, we posted on several social media platforms: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Google My Business, etc. In addition, we've posted to our company's blog. However, as a small company with limited staff and no social media specialist, it becomes difficult to keep up with comments across multiple platforms. Thus, in order to focus on other matters and still communicate with the general public, we have decided to limit our communication to the blog and Google My Business. So, to hear about us, subscribe to our blog and visit us online where we will post schedule changes, sales etc.
Also, beginning May 1st, 2022, all Vic Sea Miles Club customers will be given access to a private membership site where they will be first to know about matters pertaining to Love City Car Ferries, Inc. Thus, we will be able to prioritize their concerns.
Effective April 23, 2022 Love City's FaceBook and Instagram will be deleted.
Happy Valentine's Day
With the word love in our name, we can't help but to get excited for Valentine's Day! In order to share this excitement with you, we have decided to announce some surprise gifts for one and all but for most especially our beloved Vic Sea Miles Club Patrons.
Athniel C. “Addie” Ottley
WSTA was the only radio station that my mother played. It was always on... 24/7. Addie's booming voice was a balm. He elevated our spirits in the morning. He soothed us when things were going wrong. For this company in particular, he attempted to negotiate a truce between us and Boyson Inc back in 1998 in order that both companies could get a franchise from the VI Government. At that time, we were the only car ferries in operation. Addie was a good man and he will be missed. To his close friends and families we give our sincerest condolences. We pray that God gives you the wisdom, faith, and strength necessary to continue on. His legacy has paved the way for you. For the rest of us, we will certainly miss his voice, its charismatic tones, its sincerity. But his memory will live on in us and in our Virgin Islands Community. May his soul Rest in Peace.

One of Love City Car Ferries, Inc's primary mission is to keep the car ferry transportation in the Virgin Islands affordable. But at the same time, we have to be sustainable.
We have experienced price increases in every area between 2010 and 2021. While rates for everything have doubled and or tripled, we have not changed the price of a car or small truck.
One of the ways in which we've attempted to remain at this lower rate is by asking the local and federal governments for subsidies. The government generally realizes that this sort of transportation is necessary to the well being of the people. So, they do what is necessary to ensure its sustainability, thus subsidizing mass transit such as airlines, trains, and in the Virgin Islands passenger ferries. This is not the case in the Virgin Islands' car ferry industry. We have to assume the outright building and maintenance costs on our own.
However, given the rising costs of fuel, insurance, labor, etc, it is not only necessary but inevitable that we must raise our prices, in order to be able to continue serving the general public.
Again, we are trying to balance our compassionate value with that of the need to remain sustainable.
Thank you for your understanding.
We look forward to continuing to serve you.
Effective Saturday, January 1st, 2022 prices for various vehicles, including small cars, will increase. This change will more properly reflect the true market rate while allowing us to remain sustainable and continue to provide an exceptional service despite increasing fuel and insurance costs. The last price change on small cars was more than 10 years ago. Thank you for your understanding as this was a difficult decision to make, given our desire to remain both compassionate and sustainable.
