NY Waterway Ferry encourages ferry/bike riders to take full advantage of the 5th annual Summer Streets NYC, presented by the New York City Department of Transportation, as it waives its usual $1.25 bicycle surcharge.

During Summer Streets, nearly seven miles of New York City’s avenues will be closed to auto traffic and open for everyone to play, run, walk and bike on Saturday, August 4th, 11th, and 18th from 7 a.m. – 1 p.m., from Brooklyn Bridge to Central Park, along Lafayette Street and Park Avenue. NY Waterway Ferry is a convenient way for cyclists coming from New Jersey to participate in Summer Streets NYC.

Weekend service to the West 39th Street Ferry Terminal in Manhattan’s Hudson River Park is available from Port Imperial in Weehawken and 14th Street in Hoboken.

NY Waterway’s Your Key to the City campaign is the easiest way to enjoy the best of the Big Apple, a virtual concierge with round-trip ferry transportation and discounted tickets to New York City attractions. For more information, click on www.nywaterway.com,www.facebook.com/nywaterway or follow us @ridetheferry.
