NYC Ferry Service To Expand to Staten Island, Coney Island, the West Side of Manhattan, and the East Bronx
In 2019, NYC Ferry announced continued service expansion where neighborhoods are growing and job centers are burgeoning. On August 23, 2021, NYC Ferry launched the St. George route, making NYC Ferry a true five-borough ferry system by connecting Staten Island to the West Side of Manhattan.
By the end of 2021, NYC Ferry will launch the Coney Island route and the Throgs Neck/Ferry Point Park ferry landing in the Bronx. Additionally, Mayor de Blasio, the Trust for Governors Island, and the New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) announced on September 28th that NYC Ferry will serve Governors Island year-round beginning with the launch of the Coney Island route later this year.
