The Belt Transit Ferry provides passenger service on a regular route between Ceres and Eros.

Description[edit | edit source]

Operated by BELTRANS AG, the people-mover from Ceres to Eros is small, cheap, and overcrowded. The air recyclers have the plastic-and-resin smell of long-life industrial models that are used in warehouses and fuel depots.


Passenger Accommodations[edit | edit source]

The ship does not provide passenger cabins, only row after row of formed laminate seating and two long walls with five-stacks of bunks that passengers can hot swap. The ship's bar is always open and the drinks are cheap.[1]

Shipboard Security[edit | edit source]

If there is a fight among the passengers, the ship’s crew will pump riot gas into the cabin, knock everyone out, and put anyone who was in the scuffle under restraint. It is a draconian system but it tends to keep the passengers polite.
