HUDSON GO PASS ALLOWS CUSTOMERS TO BYPASS LINCOLN TUNNEL, BUS TERMINAL AND SUBWAY, AND UNITED NATIONS GRIDLOCK
NY Waterway and NJ TRANSIT’s Hudson Go Pass allows customers to avoid the Route 495 construction delays and keeps passengers out of the Lincoln Tunnel, the Port Authority Bus Terminal and the New York City subway.
The Hudson Go Pass also helps commuters avoid the gridlock which paralyzes Manhattan during the United Nations General Assembly through October 5.
With the Hudson Go Pass, nywaterway.com/GoPass, commuters can save up to 30 minutes per trip and have the certainty of knowing that they will arrive at their destination on time – for as little as 37 cents more per trip, when compared to a monthly bus pass and MetroCard.
Commuters can get a Hudson Go Pass 10-Trip to Midtown from Port Imperial Weehawken for $85 (especially good to have on hand for those really bad commuting days). The monthly pass to Midtown, at $280, is cheaper than monthly parking in Manhattan. Discounted Go Passes to Downtown are also available.
NJ TRANSIT customers who ride the 156R, 158 and 159R bus routes (serving the Palisade Avenue/River Road corridor) or the Hudson-Bergen Light Rail, are able to easily transfer to the NY Waterway ferry at the Port Imperial Ferry Terminal in Weehawken for:
· The eight-minute crossing to the Midtown West 39th Street Ferry Terminal in Manhattan.
· The 16-minute trip to Brookfield Place/Battery Park City in Lower Manhattan.
· The 18-minute trip to Wall Street’s Pier 11.
At the West 39th Street Midtown Ferry Terminal, free NY Waterway buses meet every arriving ferry for a seamless connection to multiple routes serving Midtown.
