SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) -- Puerto Rico's government has
bought four new ferries and announced a new departure site for those traveling
to two nearby islands popular with tourists.
Officials say the move is expected to reduce travel time to
Vieques and Culebra and improve service.
Ferries will be leaving from the eastern town of Ceiba
instead of Fajardo starting Oct. 10.
The ferry service to the two islands has long been plagued
by lengthy delays and aging equipment.
