Not Great EDIT: 1 Star. This app continues to be buggy. This morning I had 3 $8 tix. Could not validate my ticket after numerous attempts. Lost 3 tickets in the process and had to buy a new one. $32 one-way commute. I am going back to paper tickets.

Crashes constantly Convenient but horribly buggy. Cumbersome interface. Bad ui/ux

William Parrish

Time saver I use this frequently when returning rental cars at port imperial, and then going back to Manhattan. In the mornings I can bypass the line at the ticket machine, and can use the app to buy my passes in less time than it takes to cross from the parking garage to the terminal. I like having my phone as a pass.

Joshua Carrafa

Buggy, crashes often. Had to pay double for my ticket. Update: still sucks. I keep missing my ferry because they app just sits there and they won't let you on while the app is loading. I don't know why I keep using this.

Cory Lambert

Real time GPS nice, but not very accurate. Otherwise 5 stars.

Ravi Kanth

Doesnt work It worked most of the time but happened to me twice issues with phone but the app doesnt refresh the use tickets page in time and missed ferry last minute. Its pathetic fr the app to tk so much time to refresh the page even whn the ticket is stored on device. Ridiculous!!

adam bachert

Works great Use it almost everyday and no issues.

Brooks Clinton

Awful Sluggish app, missed ferries because if it. You buy tickets and then open the app and it crashes or tickets take too long to load.

Michael Hiney

Buggy and inaccurate map While it's very convenient, the app has crashed several times since downloading it. Plus the app doesn't have the marin blvd. stop listed. Instead, liberty harbor and marin blvd. are a combined stop which is completely inaccurate as these ferries service different areas. Could be great with some minor tweaking.

Ralph Yedinak

Makes it much easier to use the ferries.

Ralph Kern

Practical Tricky pulling tickets from cloud to device.

Gerry Pape

Daily commute Great when it works but occasional lockups.

Vivian Ho

Bus tracker needs work The arrows and bus position tracking are very misleading. It'd be great of you can tap Google's shoulder and use their maps and GPS system to make this section more efficient for ferry riders.

Dale Thomas

Works great. Can't complain. Works great. If possible would love a feature that provides live updates if the ferry is running late. Which it rarely does.

David Shamshovich

Unreliable and Utterly Useless At Times I have been using this app for over a year now and pretty much have problems with it everyday. It crashes every time I open it for the first time and it makes purchasing tickets a complete hastle. More importantly though if you try to load a ticket right before boarding it will likely freeze on you and prevent you from boarding the ferry which is usually already several minutes late. If you are lucky you will have the time to run to a machine and purchase a physical ticket.

Wayne Langan

Still not working on Android Never works on Android. If I want to know where the bus is I have to use my iPhone. HTC One

stephen allen

Could be improved... Why do I have to click 5 buttons that say activate ticket in order to open a tix? One of the times you hit it it just moves the Activation button to a slightly different spot and then you hit again...then again in a different box to confirm. When you're rushing this makes a big difference. App crashes on opening all the time requiring force stop. Should save your preferences for what ferry you normally take so looking up schedule and buying tix is easier/faster. Most people always take same ferry.

Henrietta Hall

Great idea. Awful execution If the app would load quickly and reliably this would be a great app. As it is it's way too unreliable to use. I'm removing it from my Galaxy S3

Corey Riley

Works great Easy to use and the bus tracker is awesome for figuring out the best stop for your destination.

Myleen Rojano

Use primarily for bus locator. Heavily rely on bus locator to check how long my wait time is. Very happy with the app.

A Google User

New version = disaster Former versions of this app worked well. This one has good planned improvements, but functionality is out the window! Tried to buy tickets, no visible destinations in the pulldown. Once I found the correct ones via trial and error, there was no way to proceed to the payment step! Total disaster!

David Piombino

Update makes it so Much better Much better now that tickets are stored locally and I don't have to look at that loading circle when attempting to board the ferry

Steven Ornstein

Crashing Unacceptable I use a stock S4 and find the daily crashes unacceptable. This app needs to be more reliable I'm tired of standing on the dock playing with my phone under pressure as the boat is about to depart. Simplify and stabilize this application.

dave gillespie

Great app but... Route maps sometimes time out loading.

Juliet Powell

Works great Works great. Recommend status updates for when ferry is delayed.

Kelly John Kavanagh

Terrible app I have lost many tickets on this app and I am getting a terrible response from ny waterway in rectifying the situation. They cannot tell me how many tickets have disappeared due to faulty activation. The bugs in this app are costing customers thousands of dollars. And oh yeah, having the screen freeze and requiring a reboot as the ferry is departing sucks too. Stick to paper tickets.

Cheryl D

Love, but bus tracking is bursty I'll have given up on the bus because I don't see it in app and all of a sudden shows on app close to where I am. Otherwise, awesome

Zocy K

Expensive app The tickets regularly disappear. So, you end up paying for the privilege of using this app.

Sylvia Kates

Great since latest update The old version was annoying. This one's a real improvement. It does everything you would want a ticketing app to do, and the pin feature really speeds things up.

Alexandre Dieudonne

Functional Provides all the information you need quickly. Good for when you need to buy a ticket or locate the ferry bus in a hurry.

Michael M

Buggy App freezes and crashes . They need a fix or new developer.

Carlos Figueroa

NY Waterway app. Very worthwhile!

Robin Polak

Very through ticket app with schedule.

Andrew Rigg

Does exactly what it says on the tin Can't argue with it.

Javier Daniel Aranda Ochoa

App keep crashing I have an android device, Google Nexus. App works decent for some time but then it started to crash without a reason, and it makes you lost tons of money of tickets paid that you can't use. NY waterway did not help you so be careful trying to use it, you are going to lost hundreds of bucks.

Bina Patel

Great...except for crash rate & battery burn

rani m

Works great Happy with the upgrade where activated tickets are available offline

Jason Smith

Fails to install on the Nexus 6 and support did not help! App won't install on my Nexus 6, tried to contact support and they replied initially but months later and nothing has happened.

Therese Leung

Awful Tried to use this on my way to governors island and the ticket that I bought was never retrieved. The guy at the ferry proceeded to accuse me of holding up the line as i struggled to get the app to work. Next time I will buy a paper ticket. Useless app!

Yaniv Inbar

Unusable. Just crashes when I start the app on my Moto X.

Eric Gatsik

Works fine for me. Serves its purpose.

jason m

Commuter Easy to use. Pretty quick

Neal Williams

Was awesome! Was efficient and accurate!

Antonio Jules

Solid app Easy to use

ry chav

Pricey but worth the convenience

Matthew Capozzoli

So much better than nothing If you are not happy with the e-ticket system or the bus locator, either don't use them or take the bus. Doing so makes a lot more sense than complaining about an app that, while not perfect, is still better than no app at all.

Cullen Kasunic

Works well A little confusing on how to activate tickets. But once you get that it's pretty easy. Would like to see it possible to buys tickets in fewer steps. Also would like to see the purchase and schedule integrated more. As in im buying a ticket. The next boats from that location are at these times. Also If I have tickets show me times for those routes. good app though, effective. A new thing is I'm never sure if the schedules are up to date. They seem to skip scheduled trips petty regularly. App or service??

Terrence McLean

Don't depend on this app I love riding the ferry, I ride it everyday to work. Occasionally the app takes it's time loading. Ferry workers have left me at the dock refusing to let me board despite my previously purchased ticket and receipt because the app is spinning trying to load my ticket (even though I ride every day). More dependable app and better ferry worker training would be good.

David Kim

It's decent, not that convenient App does what it says but has many flaws. Doesn't save multi pay amounts, very annoying to input each month. App is slow to load and takes 4 taps to show active ticket. why do I have to activate my ticket everytime? At least on the NJ Transit app the active ticket is automatically pulled up when you open the app to mimic pulling a physical ticket out. Please fix these things!

Neal Groothuis

After purchasing tickets using this app, I was unable to activate them. There was no error; they would simply return to the list of purchased tickets every time I hit "activate". Then when I tried to file feedback, the feedback mechanism kept telling me "feedback submission failed". This is not ready for prime time.

Arami Kim

Bus locator does not work well Good idea, convenient to be able to purchase tickets and check schedules but Bus Locator is oftentimes totally inaccurate/lagging and app in general is buggy and slow.

Mark Nolan

Worst app ever Spends ages "loading tiles" even though I always end up with the same set: takes at least 5 mins to get anywhere useful. Then when using tickets, refreshes forever. Usually this isn't a problem as my tickets are on device and can be used while it refreshes. But not today! I waited fully 10 minutes for it to refresh with no tickets showing, despite having loads available. Ended up using a paper ticket that I have to keep just in case this POS fails. And forget using the feedback feature: never, ever sends.

Sylvia Kates

Great since latest update Edit: Pro tip: activate your ticket as the boat is coming into the dock. That gives it time to load. There is a long limit to how long the ticket can stay on your screen, it lasts a whole 30 minutes. ====The old version was annoying. This one's a real improvement. It does everything you would want a ticketing app to do, and the pin feature really speeds things up.

Mamoon Baig

SCAM, SCAM, SCAM! Tickets refused to activate with the guy who was collecting them. After holding up the line after an embarrassing 2 minutes, he told me to step to the side. I had to purchase physical tickets ANYWAY. There's no way to issue a refund, or contact the company for that matter (app gives an error too). I filed a claim with my credit card company. What a waste of time and money. If you guys want tickets, just buy them physically; there was no line (even on labor day)and there's no point in paying twice.

Eniko Tilger

Yesterday I couldn't open the app and almost missed the ferry. I was about 7th in row and was the last person out of 30 to get on.

Alex Store

Crashes when left running. Lost a ticket. Just lost a valid ticket after the crash.This app crashes when left running for a day. My morning commute is ok, going back in the evenig often a problem. Have to step out of the boarding line and scramble to restart the app seconds before departure.

Nicolina L

Ny Waterway Review App is super easy to use. Can create a pin number in case your phone is lost or stolen. Never had a problem with buying mobile tickets. The schedule is accurate and I subscribe to the advisories

Mohammed Sharaf

Tickets don't activate and terrible customer service I have had many problems with activating tickets and nothing happens no error message or anything. The conductors should let me on if your app is clearly malfunctioning. Instead I am sent to buy a paper ticket which means I am 20 minutes late because I have to wait for the next ferry.

Chase Muratore

Functions, Ux can improve For example if I'm still asked to rate this app after I've rated it I will take down another star. Not bad for a government app,

Diana L.

NY Waterway Always use it. The only way to get to NYC

Jonathan Berschadsky

Doesn't work on Port Imperial Weehawken Walkway Even if tickets are preloaded onto the mobile device, it's hit or miss retrieving a ticket with success if an attempt is made to retreive the ticket on the walkway between the waiting area and the ferry. It's been this way since application was launched.

Cornelia MacFadyen

Needs work When it works it's great but it's inconsistent

Guthrie Collin

Ok as public transit apps go Ferry timing works well. UX is ok.

Kevin Kersh

Makes traveling back & forth from home to Manhattan so much easier. No more worries about being short on time and then finding you have to wait in line to get a ticket. Way to go!

David Wolkofsky

App and service is top notch!

Niccolo Alicandri

Good app Schedules are accurate. Bus GPS is super useful. Have not used it for ticketing yet.

Christopher Curcio

Efficient. Gets the job done.

Antonio Jules

Solid app Easy to use

Richard Still

Efficient The app preforms its function cleanly and simply.

Merez Lucio

Really great app. Really great. This is the best of the NYC /NJ transit apps by far.

Samuel Winter

Fun! Great adventure for a family day, enjoyed the Manhattan skyline.

Csaba Harmath

New version is faster and more stable

Frank Brennan

Very easy to use. Great shuttle tracking! Perfect way to but tickets.

Bobby T

Very helpful Great app for a newbie and out of towner.

Lisette Fernandez

Reinstalled the app and now it fails every time I attempt to log in through Facebook to retrieve my existing tickets.

Kevin F

Gets the job done. .. Simple and easy.

Andrew James

Helpful. Use it daily. I have yet to figure out where the busses to the ferry pick people up. Can't locate the bus stops.

Timothy Decker

Great App Easy to use and super convenient

Minki Kleinman

Ez to use and saves time in the morning rush

Aaron Foster

See rating above.

Cullen Kasunic

Nathan Turoff

5-star ferry service, 3-star app = 4 Stars Love the ferry service--use it year-round and have found it consistently safe, reliable and a pleasure to ride. I concur with all the complaints about the app--too slow to load, too many steps to activate tix, too frequently unable to access tix, causing me to miss the boat. I've been using the app for 3+ years--it should be better by now. It won't stop me using the ferries, but I look forward to improvements in the app.

william young

Not working do not upgrade It gets the job done. I do think the user interface can be improved for a better flow but that's just being nitpicky.

Michael Conway

Commute with a smile This App helps coordinate commute and wait times. This app gives insight on bus locations and timing. Cool!!


Very Easy! Great app and easy useful of e tickets.

Johnray Fuller

This app stole my money Bought 3 tickets. Tried to use them. Application crashes. Cleared cache. Restarted app. Logged in. Tickets are now for "another device." Instructions for fixing it are wrong and don't work. So the app ate $18. Lame.-- I called in and they restored my tickets. The app thought I changed devices because I restored the app from one phone to another with a root backup app. I have not yet attempted to use the tickets since the tickets were restored.

Sean Inouye

Works great No problems and useful

Maggie P

App needs the bus schedules.

Benjamin Curran

Great Very functional app!

Chris Rotella

Works well Easy to use

Gary D. Ford

I really enjoys/loves this app.

antmon antmon

not working app crashed and now says my tickets are on a different device??? used to crash before that when i wanted to activate tickets...not sure how to fix...

Mark Nolan

Used to be terrible, now great! Does exactly what it says!

Chadwick Whitehead

Doesn't work anymore. Can no longer activate my tickets.

Stephen Bailey

So easy I click, I buy, I'm done. I've made my ferry. Can't beat that!

Eric Kelce

Great app Works great, once everything is setup your off an running

Adriana Baci
