Changes to East River Ferry Ticketing

Dear East River Ferry Rider,

As you may have heard, the East River Ferry will transition to a new, expanded Citywide Ferry Service which will include lower fares ($2.75 per ride), on-board concessions, new boats, and more. In order to make sure riders are not charged a premium for this new service, all current East River Ferry app and paper tickets will expire on April 30, 2017 and the NY Waterway app will no longer be usable for ticket purchases. A new mobile ticketing app and official launch date for this service will be announced soon!

If you are a user of the Monthly or 30-Day Pass, the last day to purchase and activate those passes will be April 1, 2017.  

If you'd like to stay in touch with the progress of NYC Ferry Service, including the delivery of new boats to NYC, sign up for email alerts at ferry.nyc or follow them on social media (@nycferry).

Sincerely,
East River Ferry Team
