Historic Hoboken Ferry Terminal Reopens After More Than 40 Years

The ferry terminal in Hoboken, which stopped offering service in 1967, reopened Wednesday for commuters. The terminal, built in 1907, is listed on both the national and state historic registries. Work had to be completed to reopen the facility, which is now fully ADA compliant, including restoration, structural repairs and utility work. This last phase of the project cost $120 million.


Dubbed a premiere example of transportation architecture in the country, the Hoboken ferry terminal reopened with positive feedback Wednesday. Commuters said the facility is much nicer than the temporary terminal that has been used for ferry service since 1989. NJ Transit owns the terminal and NY Waterway operates the ferry service, which makes 8 million passenger trips per year. NJToday’s Desiree Taylor files this report.
