NY Waterway and NJ TRANSIT have partnered to provide a great alternate commuting option specifically for customers on Bus Routes 156R, 158 and 159R, the Hudson-Bergen Light Rail and ferry service from and to Port Imperial Ferry Terminal. Now you can purchase a Hudson Go Pass that can be used to travel on all three services any time.


Hudson Go Pass enables you to travel on a 156R, 158 or 159R bus for up to a two zone ride within New Jersey to the Port Imperial Ferry Terminal in Weehawken where you can connect with NY Waterway ferry service to Midtown or Downtown Manhattan. Or you can travel on the Hudson-Bergen Light Rail to Port Imperial Station and cross over to the ferry terminal for service to New York. The pass also may be used to connect between 156R, 158 and 159R bus service and light rail service at Port Imperial.
