This summer the City of Jersey City relaunched ferry service at the Port Liberte Ferry Terminal, providing weekday trips to and from Pier 11/Wall Street in Manhattan.

The City is funding the service through a $4 million grant from the State of New Jersey to support operations and better connect the community to the ferry terminal through transportation options including the Via JC and Citi Bike programs. Grant funding to support this program is administered by the NJ Department of Community Affairs (NJ DCA).
