CASPR Partners with Staten Island Ferry to Ensure Safety of Passengers and Staff

Friday, January 22nd, 2021

CASPR Group is excited to announce that we have partnered with Staten Island Ferry in New York City, the 2nd largest ferry system in the U.S., with service dating back to 1817. CASPR’s continuous disinfection technology is now helping to protect passengers, staff, and visitors from a wide-variety of viruses, bacteria, and mold, including SARS-CoV2, the virus that causes COVID-19.

Staten Island Ferry provides 22 million people a year with ferry service between Staten Island and Whitehall Street in lower Manhattan and is the only non-vehicular mode of transportation between Staten Island and Manhattan. Under the arrangement, CASPR’s award-winning technology is operating in all vessels, administrative offices, break rooms, and maintenance shops.

“CASPR Group is obviously honored to be working with Staten Island Ferry, an iconic New York institution. Not only will passengers and staff have greater peace of mind knowing our technology is up and running all the time, but this partnership also represents a key milestone in our war against the pandemic. Transportation providers are on the front lines. So, if we can help reduce the spread there, we can better protect Americans, and all people, from contracting this deadly disease,” said Todd Wiggs, Senior Vice President, Sales and Business Development for CASPR Group.
