Waterway ferry routes between New Jersey and Manhattan from Friday, November 25 through

helping families enjoy all the city has to offer this holiday season, from the Rockefeller Center
Christmas Tree to shows on Broadway to skating in Central Park. NY Waterway offers free
shuttle buses in Midtown to carry riders straight to the most popular destinations.
“With Kids Ride Free, we hope to give more families the opportunity to enjoy a safe, stress-free
way of traveling into the city. We look forward to welcoming families back on our ferries this
holiday season,” said Armand Pohan, Chairman, President and CEO of NY Waterway.
