Bucklebury Ferry was apparently left unmanned to be used by hobbit travellers as needed. On route to Frodo's new house at Crickhollow, Frodo, Sam, Merry and Pippin crossed using the Ferry just before the arrival of a Black Rider, who was forced to go around to the Brandywine Bridge as there were no other boats kept on the western bank of the river.
Portrayal in adaptations
In the The Fellowship of the Ring film, the encounter is more immediate.
