HOBOKEN, NJ — As New York City reopens its attractions, NY Waterway is restoring weekend ferry service from Port Imperial in Weehawken and 14th Street in Hoboken to the Midtown West 39th Street Ferry Terminal. This will return the ferry company to seven-day-a-week operations starting this Saturday, after routes were cut amid coronavirus.
Ferries between Weehawken and Hoboken and West 39th Street will run every 30 minutes from 11:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Visit nywaterway.com/weekends for complete schedules.
Port Imperial also offers low-cost parking for those who want to take the ferry from there to Manhattan instead of driving through the Lincoln Tunnel and parking in New York.
At West 39th Street, free NY Waterway buses are waiting for each arriving ferry to take customers throughout Midtown Manhattan. To get back to the ferry, customers can use the Bus Locator on the free NY Waterway App, available at nywaterway.com and see in real time where their buses are.
Port Imperial is served by NJ Transit buses and the $2.25 Hudson-Bergen Light Rail. Several New Jersey terminals offer free or low-cost parking, plus NJ Transit bus and Light Rail service.

All customers and employees must wear face coverings;

All ferries and buses are cleaned after every run and terminals are cleaned throughout the day;
