PORTSMOUTH, N.H. — Residents in New Hampshire are pushing officials to consider running a ferry between Portsmouth and Cape Cod.

New Hampshire Public Radio reports residents who are part of Promote Our Port made their case at city hall to elected officials and staffers.

Bob Hassold, who’s pushing the Portsmouth-to-Provincetown ferry idea, says it would take less than three hours to travel to Provincetown. Hassold says businesses on Cape Cod have indicated interest in receiving supplies from a ferry’s cargo hold.

An effort to bring a similar ferry service between the locations was nearly completed in 2001, but never came to fruition.

Portsmouth will host the Provincetown harbormaster, city manager and a representative from the town’s chamber of commerce in October.
