Welcome To Gambia Ferry Services

The Gambia Ferry Services Company Ltd (GFSC) is a subsidiary of the Gambia Ports Authority, a public company established under the Ports Act 1972, and is formed under the Companies Act 2013. The company's purpose is to connect people and places throughout and along the Gambia's territorial waters, including the river and its tributaries.

Banjul, Kaur, Barajally, Bansang, Janjanbureh, Bansang, Basse, and Fatoto are the company's current crossing stations. In addition to ferry services, the GFSC has been involved in the operation of the Senegambia bridge since January 2019, when it was tasked with installing temporary toll collection facilities at both ends of the bridge, including ticketing points of sale, control and security mechanisms, and a management system for banking the proceeds.

The GFSC's mandate includes providing safe and dependable service at a reasonable cost to its clients, as well as conducting business on strong commercial lines. The River Gambia, which separates it into two banks north and south is the most crucial possibility available to the GFSC. The river is an important source of economic activity in terms of goods and human mobility, farming, fishing, and other commercial activities. Lumo operations in Brikama Ba, Sara Bojo, Wassu, and Sameh Karamtaba rely heavily on the mobility and operation of provincial ferry services.
