Dear HPHA Members and Friends,
Yesterday, the Port Authority announced it would begin pilot ferry service on Saturdays and Sundays between the Paulus Hook Terminal and the World Financial Center beginning this weekend and ending May 4, 2014.
The fare is $2.50 one-way, it is free for children under 5, and there is a $1.00 fee for bikes.
This is payable only by cash, credit or debit card at either terminal ticketing booth. Tickets cannot be purchased online or via the NY Waterways app.
Hours will be from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m., and may change according to demand levels. Ferries depart every 15 minutes. Travel time between terminals is approximately seven minutes. One boat will travel back and forth between these two terminals.
First Paulus Hook departure – 8:00 a.m.
Last Paulus Hook departure – 9:45 p.m.
First WFC departure – 8:07 a.m.
Last WFC departure – 9:53 p.m.
Please spread the word to everyone you know who may need this service, which starts this weekend. Remember, this is a 6-week trial, the more folks that use it, the greater the chance the Port Authority will continue it!
