A one-way ticket costs $2.75, the same as a single-ride subway ticket.
NYC Ferry boats are currently operating along four routes (East River, Rockaway, South Brooklyn and Astoria). With the expansion, operators are increasing service frequency to every 20 to 30 minutes. Another line is set to connect Soundview to Wall Street/Pier 11 via East 90th Street and East 34th Street.
"It has been an incredible year. There has been a tremendous amount of enthusiasm for NYC Ferry service throughout New York Harbor," Cameron Clark, Senior VP for NYC Ferry operated by Hornblower said in a statement. "We have helped millions of New Yorkers reach their destinations and with Soundview and Lower East Side routes launching this summer, we’re excited to offer new connections to more neighborhoods. Our crew is thrilled to create amazing experiences for even more riders on NYC Ferry."
Since launching in May 2017, the NYC Ferry service has carried more than 5 million passengers – and aims to provide 9 million rides by 2023.
