NY Waterway resumes regular routes after inspection flap

Posted: Updated:

New York Waterway has returned most of its ferry routes to regular service between New Jersey and New York City.

Service was reduced Monday morning after Coast Guard inspectors found 23 of its 32 ferries “operationally unfit” and the problems justified suspending service.

A company spokesman says all routes but one will operate normal service for the Monday evening commute. Liberty Harbor service will operate every 30 minutes instead of every 15 minutes.

Ferries will mostly operate normally on Tuesday.

Liberty Harbor to Pier 11 will operate every 30 minutes instead of every 15 minutes from 7:30 a.m. to 9 a.m.; Paulus Hook to Harborside to West 39th Street will operate every 30 minutes instead of every 15 minutes from 7:15 a.m. to 8:45 a.m.

Customers who use Harborside to Brookfield Place will be directed two blocks to Paulus Hook.
