NYC Ferry operated by Hornblower aims to provide a new, affordable way to travel between waterfront communities throughout New York City. The six routes span over 60 nautical miles of waterways and will connect New Yorkers and visitors to the city’s waterfront communities – including neighborhoods, job centers, and parks.
Remember to show your ticket to the deckhand before you board. You can purchase tickets on the app or the Ticket Machines at the landings.
Tickets are available for purchase through ticket machines. All transfers within the NYC Ferry system are free and valid for 90 minutes once you start your one-way trip. Round-trip journeys do not qualify for free transfers.
Children under the height of 44 inches can ride for free when accompanied by an adult. Please make sure children are accompanied by adults at all times. Stroller parking is available onboard. Travel safe! Follow the safety procedures to ensure the best quality experience.
Bikes are welcome on the ferry. Before boarding, remember to select the bike option when purchasing the ticket. A $1.00 surcharge applies to all bikes brought on board (riders who bring a suitcase-sized folding bike can keep their bike with them while traveling). NYC Ferries can accommodate approximately 8-10 bicycles. Please note that there is a limit to how many bicycles each ferry can safely carry and if we reach bicycle capacity you may not be permitted to board with your bicycle.
NYC Ferries are 86 ft. long, offering riders more space.
Ferries are primarily built out of aluminum, a lightweight material that increases fuel efficiency. The fleet of 27 vessels is built with an equivalent of over 77 million cans of aluminum.
All ferries are equipped with ultra-efficient T3 engines to reduce emissions and we’re introducing the first T4 vessels in our fleet soon.
The innovative hull design will limit wakes and maximize fuel efficiency
There are 129 seats on the lower deck and 28 seats on the upper deck of our 150 passenger vessels. There are 162 seats on the lower deck and 182 seats on the upper deck of our 350 passenger vessels.
Hello New Routine.
As you take in the sea air and have a little celebration because you’re not underground or stuck in traffic, why not consider how much your commute has changed. But while the new ways to get around New York are exciting, the rest of the commute is still the same. We’re trying to fix that.
Born in the subway in 2015, The New Stand is one part curated convenience store and one part mobile media machine. It’s kind of like your favorite bodega and favorite blog had a baby. In our shops you’ll find the tastiest snacks and drinks, essentials from sunblock to phone chargers, and a rotating mix of tech, fashion, health and other products all geared towards the commuter.
Our free app is restocked every morning with the best articles, stories, product drops and music releases that our newsroom can dig up. Convenience is everything to us, so you can also use our app for a speedy check out, weekly deals and to build up loyalty points that you can spend at the stores.
We hope to become a part of your daily routine by getting you exactly what you need while introducing you to a few new things along the way.
Thanks and have a new day!
