SOUTH AMBOY, NJ, OCTOBER 30, 2023 - The City of South Amboy and NY Waterway today launched their new South Amboy ferry service to New York City, offering direct routes from South Amboy to Downtown (Brookfield Place) and to Midtown (West 39th St). Free local shuttles run between Sayreville and South Amboy and the ferry landing at 100 Radford Ferry Road in South Amboy.

“This is a great day for all involved.” said Fred A. Henry, Mayor of  The City of South Amboy.

“I would especially like to thank NY Waterway for their cooperation in getting this temporary site opened and beginning business. This is something that we have waited quite some time for, and I am very excited about the ceremonial launch on October 30th.”

“We’re thrilled to bring this ferry connection to the South Amboy community and to the thousands of commuters who live in surrounding Middlesex County and seek fast, comfortable and reliable service,” said Armand Pohan, CEO and President of NY Waterway. “Free parking, easy South Amboy rail connections and free shuttles locally and in New York City make the ferry a highly attractive commuting option and we expect the South Amboy terminal to be a catalyst for economic development in that area.”

“This is a historic day for South Amboy and the surrounding communities,” said Assembly Speaker Craig Coughlin. “This project is very personal for me. For most of my life I’ve heard from local business and civic leaders about what a regular ferry service could mean for my hometown, economically and culturally. I’m proud of the work we’ve done to coordinate local, state, and federal resources and I’m thrilled that a company of NY Waterway’s stature will be managing this operation. Generations of residents will benefit from this as our region thrives and grows.”
