NY Waterway & NJ Transit Hudson Go Pass
Hudson Go Pass from NY Waterway
[Note: The NY Waterway is constantly innovating ways to “beat the system” of archaic and corrupt transportation options in our area. This new Hudson Go Pass, while it was developed more for people to the north of Hoboken, will still benefit some who just feel like hopping on the Light Rail to take the Ferry to NYC.]
