Newburgh-Beacon Ferry Resumes Thursday, March 27

MTA Metro-North Railroad’s Newburgh-Beacon Ferry resumes operation on Thursday, March 27, after a three-month hiatus due to the brutally cold winter that froze the Hudson River to an extent not seen in years.

The only day the commuter ferry operated in 2014 was on January 2. A major blizzard struck on Friday, January 3, and both the Newburgh-Beacon and the Haverstraw-Ossining ferries were suspended. Substitute bus service started the following Tuesday, when local roads finally were cleared.
