We stayed on the Jersey side so we had to use the ferry to get to Manhattan each day and evening. While in the city, instead of taking a taxi back to the ferry station to get back to Jersey, they have Waterway busses that will take you back for free. You will need your ticket from that morning. (They... More

The ferry landing we used is literally right outside the Sheraton's door in Weehawken and NYC bus transportation is included for all ferry travelers. Quick and comfortable ride and very punctual. Will definitely use again! Picture is from our hotel window.

Took the ferry from Weehawken to 39th street terminal and it was a seamless task. Their app is great and the ferry is clean and on time. Stayed in Sheraton which is less than 2 minutes from the ferry. Would highly recommend this way to get into the city!!

Very pleasant ride across the Hudson. Lands in either Midtown or the Financial District. We landed in midtown and took their FREE bus to Times Square. Very convenient.

Ferry took us right to NYC, you can access ,many ports, great schedule. Parking was only $16 for the day, newer facility with lots of parking. Helps avoid the traffic while driving and also the high costs of parking in the city. Cost $18 round trip. They also have shuttles in NYC once you arrive to take you to destinations... More

Very simple to use, bought tickets using app. Sheraton hotel apparently doesn't sell the tickets for those going to Lincoln harbor, but otherwise very easy. Quick ride too...

Had to use this often as I was staying in Lincoln Harbour. Seemed a very efficient service, though if you use it often it adds up, and it's not cheap.

Not bad and runs pretty frequently between New Jersey and Manhattan. Pretty of taxi waiting outside and they have free buses to take you into the city for free. You just need to choose the one that is near your destination. Good way to see Manhattan skyline and don't have to break a bank.

Great way to avoid Midtown traffic. Schedule is excellent to midtown both during the week days and weekend. Can get expensive if you have a large family. They are finally replacing some of the older City buses which were terrible. Still find almost all of the employees miserable. Bus drivers are angry and not helpful for the tourists. Time to...
