Starting December 28th, 2021, our Soundview route will be expanding to Throgs Neck/Ferry Point Park.

The expansion will increase service to more waterfront communities where neighborhoods are growing and job centers are flourishing. The new stop will make it easier for surrounding communities in Throgs Neck to get to parts of Manhattan in less than an hour.

Before the Soundview route, residents sometimes faced 90+ minute commutes to midtown and downtown destinations but once service began, many noted reductions of up to 1 hour for their commutes. The route was originally expected to see around 410,000 riders during the first 12 months but in less than a year, we saw 670,000+ riders—63% more than expected. We’re excited to help even more residents cut down their commute times with the addition of the Throgs Neck landing.

To shuttle riders from the parking lot to the ferry landing at the southwestern portion of Ferry Point Park, an interim vehicle will be in place that will operate from 5 AM – 9 AM and 4:30 PM – 8:30 PM on weekdays.

Guidelines for the shuttle are as follows:

  • Masks required
  • Operates on a first-come-first-served basis
  • Be kind, offer a seat to people with disabilities and seniors first
  • Limited shuttle capacity ; shuttle may do multiple trips
  • Shuttle leaves approximately 10 minutes prior to ferry departures
  • No bikes allowed on the shuttle
