PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — The Providence-to-Newport ferry will open for the season this week.

The ferry is set to begin running its hour-long route across Narragansett Bay on Friday. Last year, service began on June 17.

The Providence Journal reports that ferry operator Seastreak has refurbished the vessel Ocean State for the 2018 season and agreed to add night trips during WaterFire lightings.

Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children, seniors and people with disabilities.

Ferry service runs until Oct. 8.
