SAN DIEGO (AP) — After a decade, the military is shutting down a free ferry service from San Diego across the bay to the North Island Naval Air Station because of security concerns.
Navy officials decided the ferry route is a potential risk for a terrorist attack. The closure comes as part of a nationwide security clampdown ordered after the fatal shooting in November of 13 people at Ft. Hood, Texas.
The ferry will make its final five-minute run Friday.
The state government subsidized the ferry service as a way to reduce traffic on roads leading to the island facility, where 35,000 sailors and civilian employees work.
It carries about 130 passengers a day.
