Have you tried our Bus Locator yet? If you haven’t, then you are surely missing out! Commuters and tourists alike are finding this very useful in their travels in and around Manhattan and NJ!

This fun and useful system was released a few months back, and the positive reviews and comments we have been getting have been overwhelming! We are pleased to hear that so many of our customers have been finding it useful finding their way in and around Manhattan.

Our FREE buses in Midtown depart from our 39th Street terminal. The routes NOW include our Manhattan routes in Midtown (34th Street, 42nd Street, 50th Street, 57th Street, Downtown, and East 34th Street). These routes also include PEAK and OFF PEAK routes, depending on the times you log onto the system. Routes also include WEEHWAKEN and our BOULEVARD EAST routes!

As part of our ongoing efforts to keep you conveniently commuting, the Bus Locator allows NY Waterway? riders to track how close a bus is to their current location. Maps of the bus routes are continuously updated with highlighted streets signifying the chosen route. Large red arrows are used to indicate the location of the buses, and the direction in which it is headed. This will surely take the guess-work out of your daily travels!

Don’t have access to the GPS Bus Locator? No worries! You can still access this same system by calling 877-53-BUSES, and one of our friendly representatives will have the ability to tell you where your bus is in relation to where you are, and where you should be standing! How convenient!

Just a reminder when trying to catch one of our buses in NYC; please make sure you are standing at the appropriate NYC Bus stop along the route, and flag the driver to signal them to stop.
