In the aftermath of the coronavirus pandemic, many businesses have had to entirely rethink how they operate. Some of those most heavily impacted have been tourism operators and travel agencies which have had to think outside the box when looking for solutions for their present problems.

Providing new services for a new kind of traveller

One of the main takeaways from the coronavirus pandemic is the fact that many people will choose to remain within their own countries over this year’s summer. This has prompted businesses and authorities to reshape their models so as to better accommodate domestic tourists who will end up being the main drivers behind growth this season.

One of the changes that's afoot in Denmark has been the resurgence of ferry transport for pedestrians and cyclists. With more and more Danish citizens choosing to remain in the country, the need for alternative modes of transportation to its many parts has also arisen.

As TheMayor.EU reported earlier in June, the Danish government was already planning such an initiative – the ferry connection for pedestrians and cyclist encompassing a total of 47 routes. And just last week another ferry service was launched, connecting Copenhagen and Elsinore.

According to the company responsible for the route, its launch is owed precisely to the change in circumstances in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic. The need for more and alternative ways of transportation became evident over the last few months with the easing of lockdown restrictions.

The journey lasts for about an hour and 15 minutes and costs a total of 125 kroner per adult or 50 kroner per child. If you wish to take a bike with you, you must pay an additional fee of 50 kroner. The route is operational Wednesdays through Sundays with its first departure taking place at 8 AM.
