To welcome commuters back to work, NY Waterway is offering a one-week free ferry trial to first-time ferry commuters who have moved into a new residence within one mile of a ferry terminal in the last six months.
First-time ferry commuters going to work in New York (NJ residents) or New Jersey (NYC Residents) also are eligible for the free trial, which is an e-ticket good for seven days.
NY Waterway currently has service from New Jersey terminals at:
Port Imperial and Lincoln Harbor in Weehawken;
14th Street and NJ TRANSIT Rail-Ferry Terminal in Hoboken;
Paulus Hook and Liberty Harbor in Jersey City;
Belford/Middletown in Monmouth County
So people who have moved into a new residence within one mile of these terminals in the last six months and have not previously been a ferry commuter or first-time ferry commuters going to work in Manhattan or New Jersey are eligible for the seven-day e-ticket, subject to verification.
In Manhattan, NY Waterway ferries service the Midtown/West 39th Street Ferry Terminal, the Brookfield Place/Battery Park City Terminal and the Pier 11/Wall Street Terminal.
In response to a customer survey, NY Waterway has added extensive health safety measures including cleaning and sanitizing all ferries and buses after every trip and all terminals several times a day; requiring that all customers and employees wear face coverings; and limiting ferry and bus capacity to 50 percent, with seats labeled for social distanced seating on all ferries & buses.Commuters may apply for the one-week free ferry trial at [email protected] or call 1-800-53-FERRY.
