The New York Water Taxi is lowering its fares from Haverstraw and Yonkers to Lower Manhattan! At a time when other modes of commute are getting costlier due to higher gas prices, tolls, and train fares, the ferry route is getting cheaper. The Water Taxi is lowering its fares ahead of the summer season, in hopes of increasing ridership on the ferry. The new fare from Haverstraw to Lower Manhattan are $12.00 one-way, down from $15.00. The new fare from Yonkers to Lower Manhattan is $10.00 one-way, down from $12.00. Rides between Yonkers and Haverstraw will now be $5.00.

To Increase ridership on ferry to downtown NYC, suggest Rockland School District teachers take advantage of great field trip – many historic sites including Museum of American Indian, Ellis Island, Fraunces Tavern,etc. great for fifth and sixth graders.

Weekend Service is being discussed but is “not a hight priority.” I agree with you, weekend service is needed! There are currently no concrete plans for weekend ferry service from Haverstraw, unfortunately. I will update you as things progress.
