NEW YORK – Newburgh-Beacon and Haverstraw-Ossining ferry service provided by Metro-North Railroad will resume on August 30, Railroad President Cathy Rinaldi announced on Monday.

Both services provide Hudson River crossing alternatives for Orange County and Rockland County residents to access east-of-Hudson commuter rail service.

Rinaldi said the ferry service has been suspended for over a year.

“We have not been running the service since shortly after the lockdowns began in the spring of 2020,” she said. “We have seen ridership increase beginning in the spring. As the summer has gone on our ridership has picked up very nicely and we are looking forward to a Labor Day service increase and it seemed like the right time to bring the ferries back as well.”

The weekday peak service is provided by NY Waterway.
