Dear NJ member,

The State of NJ will be providing free ferry service for families of victims of the 9/11/01 terrorist attacks again this year. Anyone wishing to take the ferry should call the number below ASAP to register and obtain a parking pass.


For ID, please bring your letter from New York City or your P or T number.

Please do not bring food and water or other liquids. Light refreshments will be served at the Terminal prior to the ferry departure.  Please plan to arrive by 6:00 A.M. in order to enjoy your coffee before going through the security check point where refreshments interfere with the equipment.  Please do not carry large bags with you.

The ferry service from Liberty State Park to NYC is as follows:
6:45 A.M.
7:15 A.M.

The New Jersey State Police will again provide an escort from the ferry to the WTC site.

Returning ferries will depart New York City for Liberty State Park:
Immediately after the Ground Zero program ends
1:00 P.M.
2:00 P.M.

You MUST REGISTER for the ferry service.  Please call the Governor’s Office of Recovery and Victim Assistance at 609/777-1248 as soon as possible.  Be sure to mention any special needs you may have.  New York City will not provide seating for those who need it unless it is pre-arranged.
