NY WATERWAY FERRY IS BEST ALTERNATIVE TO ROUTE 495 DELAYS AS COMMUTERS GO BACK TO WORK


As commuters go back to work and school, NY Waterway ferries are the best alternative when lanes are closed on Route 495 approaching the Lincoln Tunnel.  Serving 10 terminals in Hudson, Bergen and Monmouth Counties, ferries allow commuters to avoid Lincoln Tunnel and Manhattan traffic and/or the Port Authority Bus Terminal.

            There is extensive seven-day-a-week service to Midtown and Downtown Manhattan, with many ferries crossing the Hudson River in as little as six minutes.  Most New Jersey terminals are served by the Hudson-Bergen Light Rail and NJ TRANSIT buses.  The Hoboken/NJ Transit Terminal offers quick, seamless ferry connections to the extensive NJ TRANSIT rail service at the terminal.

            Several terminals have low-cost parking, meaning parking in New Jersey and taking a ferry is faster and less expensive than driving into Manhattan and paying to park in the city.

            At the Midtown/West 39th Street Ferry Terminal, free NY Waterway buses meet arriving ferries, for a seamless transfer to five routes serving Midtown and Downtown.
