NORTH BERGEN AND BEYOND – Hoping to attract more ferry riders, NY Waterway will launch a free bus service from North Bergen to the Weehawken Port Imperial ferry terminal.
According to company President and Founder Arthur Imperatore, beginning on Sept. 13 NY Waterway will operate free busses for commuters currently served by NJ Transit’s B-23 bus. This trip usually costs riders $1.50 one-way.
Imperatore said these busses will run every 10 minutes during morning and evening rush and every 20 minutes during off-peak hours from Bergenline and Woodcliff Avenue in North Bergen. Commuters can take them to the Port Imperial, where departing ferries will take them to West 39th Street, lower Manhattan’s World Financial Center, and Wall Street’s Pier 11.
From West 39th Street, free busses will bring riders across and downtown.
“To assure that our customers are enjoying the most seamless, most pleasant commute at the best possible price, we decided to provide this new bus service,” Imperatore said. “We are proud of our 23-year commitment to customer service.”
