New York Water Taxi recently launched a page on its website dedicated to the new ferry route from Yonkers Pier, which will likely be expanded to the Haverstraw Ferry Landing sometime in August or sooner, depending on operation dynamics. The ferry from Yonkers is scheduled to launch on the morning of May 1, 2007. The trip will cost commuters $12.00 one-way, $110 for a block of 10 tickets, and $440 for a block of 40 tickets. From Yonkers, the trip is expected to take about 40 minutes to the World Financial Center Pier and about 55 minutes to Pier 11 at the base of Wall Street (the trip will take longer from Haverstraw, by about another 15-20 minutes). The ferry schedule is posted on the NY Water Taxi website, here. Please, visit the homepage at www.HaverstrawLife.com for more updated information about this ferry service.
Unfortunately, the Haverstraw-Yonkers-Lower Manhattan Ferry Service has been cancelled/discontinued for that past 3 years. Officials have given no word on whether or not the service will ever be revived. Considering the current budget situation, it may be a long time before this service comes back.
