The Jamestown-Scotland Ferry provides convenient service over the James River. Not only is it a free service for both single passengers and cars, but the 15 minute long ferry operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Authorities do perform security checks and screenings, so make sure to arrive a couple minutes before the scheduled departure time. The 4 ferries serving this route are the best way to cross the river as there is not a crossing until Jordan Point Road on one side and the James River Bridge to the East. Check the website for details of sailing times.
