Manhattan-bound commuters tired of cramming onto overcrowded trains can ditch the underground tunnels for the gorgeous New York Harbor when they ride with NY Waterway.
Whether you’re headed to midtown, downtown, or even Central Park, NY Waterway’s fleet of ferries can get you across the Hudson safely and efficiently. Once you get to New York, complimentary shuttle buses connect you to various destinations in Manhattan. All without having to step foot inside an overcrowded PATH or MTA train.
And now with NY Waterway’s newest ferry dock — located directly outside the Harborside terminal near Exchange Place — getting to New York has never been faster. That’s because ferries that depart from the new dock can get you to lower Manhattan in as little as six minutes. Need to get to midtown? NY Waterway gets you there in 8 minutes.
Service between Harborside and the West 39th Street Ferry Terminal in Manhattan is offered Monday through Friday from 6:30am to 7:38pm. Ferries depart every 30 minutes and fares are $8 for a single ticket, $75 for a 10-trip ticket, or $274.50 for a monthly pass.
Service between Harborside and Brookfield Place/Battery Park City is offered Monday through Friday from 6:40am to 9:02pm. Ferries depart every 15 minutes and fares are $6 for a single ticket, $56.50 for a 10-trip ticket, or $196 for a monthly pass.
The Harborside terminal is located at 210 Hudson street and is within walking distance of the PATH Exchange Place station, the Hudson-Bergen Light Rail, and select NJ Transit buses. Other NY Waterway terminals in Jersey City are located in nearby Paulus Hook, Liberty Harbor, and Port Liberte.
So skip the crowded trains, avoid the congested tunnels, and make commuting your favorite part of the day.
