Armand Pohan, President, CEO & Chairman of NY Waterway said:

“Every ferry takes dozens—sometimes hundreds—of cars off the region’s roadways. They’re already a clean and sustainable way to commute, and now they’ll be even greener. It’s our mission to be a good steward of the harbour, and we’re so thrilled to see the Hoboken reenter service with cleaner engines, room for more passengers and lower fuel use on every trip.”

The Hoboken’s four 600-horsepower EPA Tier 1 engines have been replaced by two 900-horsepower EPT Tier 3 engines and capacity has increased by 60 percent, from 149 to 247 passengers.

Five more ferries are now due to be upgraded in the future through a 12-million USD grant from the Federal Transportation Administration. NY Waterway is completing this project in collaboration with NJ TRANSIT.
