The NYC Ferry Experience

A New Affordable Way to Travel

NYC Ferry operated by City Experiences 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.

The Boarding Process

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.
  • Check the Schedule
    Schedules can be found in NYC Ferry app and are available for download PDF through our Routes & Schedules page. Departure schedules can also be found at every landing.
  • Buy a Ticket
    Tickets are available for purchase through website, ticket machines, and NYC Ferry app. All tickets include free transfers, zero bike fees and valid for 120 minutes once you start your one-way trip.
  • Join Our Social Community & Stay in the Know
    Share photos and videos of your adventures with us via Twitter, Facebook and Instagram @NYCFerry. Alerts can be turned on with our NYC Ferry App.
  • Traveling with Children
    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.
  • Bringing a Bike Along
    NYC Ferries can accommodate approximately 8-10 bicycles (riders who bring a suitcase-sized folding bike can keep their bike with them while traveling). 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.
