NY Waterway Launches Improved Service Between NJ and Lower Manhattan

Tuesday, November 25, 2003
Effective Monday, November 24, NY Waterway launches improved high-speed commuter service between the Hoboken Rail/Ferry Terminal and Pier 11 at Wall Street in Lower Manhattan. New low-emission, low-wake, handicapped accessible ferries traveling at 35 mph, will travel between Hoboken and Pier 11 every eight minutes during morning and evening rush hour, making the trip in just 10 minutes – cutting the commuting time in half. This is especially important for New Jersey commuters who work on the east side of Lower Manhattan and must make train and bus connections in Hoboken. Effective Monday, December 1, NY Waterway also introduces high-speed ferry service between Jersey City’s Harborside and Newport developments and Pier 11 at Wall Street. Ferries depart every 20 minutes in rush hour. Commuting time is eight minutes between Harborside and Pier 11, and 10 minutes between Newport and Pier 11. These new routes replace service to Pier A in Battery Park, which is closing upon resumption of PATH service to lower Manhattan. This temporary facility was installed as an emergency measure after September 11.
