Since 1986, NY Waterway ferries have carried more than 200 million passengers, providing safe, fast and reliable transportation. As the largest privately owned and operated ferry service in the nation, we carry thousands of riders every day. But despite our ever-continued growth, we remain a family business that prioritizes dedication to service.

Come Aboard!

Family owned with less than 400 employees; all our people are considered important members of the NY Waterway family. Our Ferry and Bus Operations offer long-term career paths with solid opportunities for advancement. (Deckhands have become Captains of our vessels & Bus Drivers have become Dispatch Managers.)

NY Waterway has a storied history of providing critical evacuation and rescues and stepping in to provide service during emergencies. We've earned international renown for our role in water rescues big and small, most notably in history's largest maritime evacuation on 9/11 and our rescue of over 100 passengers from the U.S. Air Flight 1549 Miracle on the Hudson.
