Due to larger crowds than anticipated, the East River Ferry (via NY Water Taxi) is approximately 15 minutes behind schedule.
Due to anticipated holiday traffic at Rockefeller Center, the Midtown Shuttle will be rerouted along Madison Ave instead of 6th Ave from 11/30-12/30.

Company Ticketing Policies

  • All passengers are required to purchase tickets prior to boarding. There are no ticket sales on board. 
  • Ticket Vending Machines (TVMs) are located at all terminals and accept cash, credit, and debit payments.
  • All passengers are required to disembark at the end of a scheduled run, at either the East 34th St. terminal in Midtown or the Pier 11/Wall St. terminal downtown. (On summer weekends, the end of the southbound scheduled run becomes Governors Island).  Holders of Monthly or All-Day Passes will not be required to purchase an additional ticket when re-boarding.  All others will.
  • Single-Ride tickets purchased at the TVMs are valid for 30 days from the date of purchase.
  • Monthly passes purchased at the Ticket Vending Machines or with the agent at Pier 11/Wall Street are only valid for the calendar month and year printed on the front of the ticket (including weekdays and weekends).
  • 30-Day passes purchased via the NY Waterway mobile app are valid for 30 consecutive days starting with the day of activation (including weekdays and weekends).
  • All Sales Are Final.  NO Refunds, Replacements or Exchanges.

Company Children Policies

  • Children ages five and under may travel free and do not require a ticket. A maximum of two children are allowed to travel free with each accompanying ticketed adult passenger. All other passengers (age six and up) require a regular Adult ticket.
  • Passengers under the age of 12 must be accompanied by an adult.
  • Due to US Coast Guard safety considerations and the specific number of children’s life preservers available on board each vessel, no more than 40 children may be on board a vessel at any one time. Captains and deckhands enforce these rules and may impose other restrictions at their discretion.

Additional Policies

  • No personal checks accepted.
