HUDSON COUNTY -- On Thursday, kids 12 and under can ride free on NY Waterway commuter ferries with their parents as they head to work for Take Your Child to Work Day.
Kids accompanying a paying adult will ride free all day on all ferries. There is no proof of age necessary.
Officially known as "Take Our Daughters And Sons To Work Day," the program was created 16 years ago as an educational experience. Designed to be more than a career day, the program exposes children to what a parent or mentor in their lives does during the work day, shows them the value of education, and helps them begin taking steps toward their goals in a hands-on and interactive environment.
