As spring approaches, customers can enjoy the exhilaration of riding on the open-air upper deck, taking in the breathless vista of the Manhattan skyline.

On weekdays, ferries travel to the West 39th Street Midtown Ferry Terminal from Edgewater, from Port Imperial and Lincoln Harbor in Weehawken, from Hoboken 14th Street and the Hoboken/NJ TRANSIT Terminal, from Harborside, Liberty Harbor and Paulus Hook in Jersey City and from Belford / Middletown in Monmouth County. 

Free connecting NY Waterway shuttle buses are waiting at the Midtown West 39th Street Ferry Terminal to take customers on several routes, including to parade viewing areas.

Several New Jersey terminals offer inexpensive parking (some free) and are served by the Hudson/Bergen Light Rail, NJ TRANSIT buses and local free NY Waterway buses.
