Statement from Mayor Bhalla regarding future of ferry service in Hoboken

Mayor Ravi Bhalla spoke today to the directors of one of the tristate area’s leading ferry operators about the future of ferry service in Hoboken. Below is a statement regarding this conversation.
“This afternoon, I had a very productive conversation with the leadership of one of the region’s leading ferry operators,” said Mayor Bhalla. “They assured me that if New York Waterway chose to no longer operate in Hoboken as they have threatened to do on numerous occasions, this ferry company would be willing to go through the process of becoming Hoboken’s ferry operator. This conversation is the latest proof that a “transportation crisis,” as manufactured by New York Waterway, is nothing more than a blatant lie and intimidation tactic. I remain committed to both preserving the Union Dry Dock site for a public park, while also working with a ferry operator to provide safe, reliable and efficient transportation for our residents.”
