“can't believe I haven't reviewed this before now”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2012

When in Weehawken I stay on Blvd East, so I either catch the bus or the ferry into Manhattan. The ferry service is very good and runs frequently. Cheapest when buying pre-pay. That combined with the free shuttle service across town makes the commute easy and pain free. The view of the city skyline alone makes this trip worthwhile. Take it from a local, this is a great way to get around this town

“The most convenient way to cross”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2012

Running every 15 - 20 minutes, it was very convenient. Picking us up right outside our hotel and dropping us within walking distance to Times Square. They also include bus service in your fare on the Manhattan side if you prefer not to walk.

Always on time. $7.60 for the 6 minute ride ( 10 ride pre-pay) and free shuttle buses in New York City provided by the Waterway Ferry.

“Fastest way to reach Manhatten”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2012

We have tried it once and it was amazing, the views are fantastic. But the price is a little bit high. We spent $20 for one-way tickets (couple). But to be honest it was the fastest way to reach Manhatten from NJ.
