AS of 2/5/2020 the ferry is not running. I appears to be undergoing some kind of refit.

>>>CALTRANS AWARDS CONTRACT FOR NEW RIO VISTA FERRY

Solano The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) today announced the award

of a contract to build a new Real McCoy (Ryer Island Ferry). The $4.3 million contract was

awarded to Nicols Brothers, a boat building company located in Freeland, Washington.

Caltrans anticipates having the new vessel in operation by summer 2010. Upon delivery the new

vessel will continue to provide non-stop service from State Route 84 in Rio Vista to Ryer Island

in Solano County.<<<

Nichols Brothers is a long-established shipbuilder; they'll make 'em a nice boat.
