NYC Ferry is excited to announce continued improvements to Rockaway service with the introduction of Rockaway Reserve tickets and a limited Rockaway Rocket service in Brooklyn. See below for more details:
Rockaway Reserve Tickets
Starting July 1st, NYC Ferry riders can reserve a spot on any weekend Rockaway trips to the beach from 9am-2pm and back from 3pm-8pm. Reserved tickets cost $10 and are available for purchase up to 2 weeks before the date of each departure, so plan ahead and get your tickets early! Most spots on each vessel are un-reserved so riders paying a $4.00 regular fare, $2.75 as part of the ten-pack or $1.35 discount will be able to ride normally. Reserved tickets are available for purchase in the NYC Ferry app for travel to/from Rockaway via both Wall Street/Pier 11 and Sunset Park/Brooklyn Army Terminal.
To provide more weekend capacity for all Rockaway riders, NYC Ferry will operate an extra vessel adding 25% more capacity on weekends and holidays starting July 1st: View Rockaway Schedule
