This was part of the adventure of our first trip to NYC. It was great for quick access to the city and fun sightseeing. They run every few minutes so it is very convenient. The fare includes the bus in the city - just don't sit too close to the front on the bus - watching how the driver maneuvers through traffic is not for the faint of heart!

$9.25 each way. Luckily kids 12 and younger were free for the summer! The shuttles in Manhattan, were convenient, but we were never able to get a return shuttle, and ended up walking many many blocks back to the ferry at night.

Quick and frequent rides back forth from NJ and NY and free bus rides on the NY side to take you all over the city.

I took the ferry with a friend on our first trip to Times Square and it was an extremely nice experience. It was very easy to navigate with the tickets and where to brings you. It was clean and a quick but nice ride. Inexpensive and nice experience to add to our NYC trip

Loved our trip to the city. To avoid the traffic we decided to visit the NYC by waterway. Great experience would recommend it and definitely a better alternative then paying tolls and parking in the city. Only negative remark would be that when you are returning late then you would need to get to 12th Ave and 38 street. Its very confusing especially if its your first time (the place is a bit hidden and no signs around).
