Perfect way to enter the city.

Nice and smooth. The best way to get to and out of the city. Safe parking and the perfect location. Wish parking was cheaper but $16 flat is better than city prices.

We arrived Weehawken on Nov 19th. Sheraton Lincoln Harbor hotel staff was really nice helping me to know how to get around the area. He also told me about the kids rides for free NY Waterway promotion. My husband and I decided to purchase a 7 days passes for unlimited rides between Lincoln Harbor and Midtown NY. I downloaded their... More

This is a nice way to reach New Jersey from NY but the ticket is crazily expensive!! I hate the PATH but at lease it's kind of cheap!

We used this Ferry several times during our stay in the New York area. Was also fantastic for the last day as it dropped us 3 blocks from our cruise ship terminal

My GPS had a hard time finding the Port Imperial station but once there, parking was nearby and very easy to catch the ferry. Combined with a bus to the theatre district and back, this is the best value in NYC. Only complaint was the strong smell of diesel fuel, on both buses. Also, the website maps, verses the mobile...

The NY Waterway ferry terminal in Weehawken makes commuting in and out of the city a breeze. There are also free shuttles from the various surrounding towns to help make the commute even easier. And, if you have time stop in at the bar for a drink while you're waiting for your boat...great bartenders and snacks.

Super clean, timely ferry that gives you a fantastic view of NYC. On a sunny day, the water is sparkly. Lots of taxi's on the other side to take you where you need to go. Highly recommend this!

This station is new and clean. I love taking the ferry! This is the best way to get to the city. They have continuous bus service but passed 8:40pm on weekdays, there is only 1 bus that goes only 1 route (which thankfully still works for me). I wish the NY Waterway could provide bus service for Blvd East to... More
