Love the ferry!

This ferry is awesome. It's the best way to get to or from New York! I stayed in Weehawken while on a business trip, and I took the ferry every day. It was the best part of my day!

I enjoyed a quick trip to NYC via the Lincoln Harbor water ferry. I was pleasantly surprised when I realized your ticket provides a free bus ride to your destination. I was going to see the WTC and 9/11 Memorial. The bus picked me up for my return to the ferry.

A Saturday trip to NYC was made even more fun because of this experience. We bought our tickets through our free phone app. Parked our car in a safe garage across the street from the dock and go on the ferry (which was on time) without a single glitch. Getting into Weehawken was a bit frustrating, given the archaic nature... More

We tried the ferry because we never had. Good experience; it was a quick trip to Battery Park area. I would personally prefer the bus unless there was traffic, but only because that is cheaper.

I usually take the ferry into NYC from New Jersey to save time and avoid the traffic. The best part of the package is that you get to ride a Waterway bus for free in Manhattan for free to hundreds of stops on several routes. Well worth the money and view.

This was a short walk of an even shorter pier. We zipped across calm river waters in 1/3rd the time it woul dhave taken to do the tunnel. The breeze was a delight compared with the exhaust of a bus ahead of you. Walked right down the street to our destination on the west side. Parking is pricey on the... More

Nothing bad to say at all. Fast, efficient, reasonably priced, great schedule. Great way to travel back and forth between NYC and NJ.

The ferry was an inexpensive way to get to the city, but the bus drivers were sometimes rude and the busses were confusing and hard to flag down.

Speedy service to Manhattan, it costs $18.50 return and they run continuously. You can sit inside or go upstairs to sit outside and get a great view of the Manhattan skyline.

This is a easy and fast transportation that our Manhattan family uses when we decided to meet in one of the great restaurants on the Jersey side of the Hudson river. The boat ride is very fast and starts out from midtown 39th street and it takes just minutes to cross to Jersey. Great view of Manhattan Skyline is a... More
