The northbound lanes of the Pulaski Skyway are closed for two years as the bridge is reconstructed. The anticipated nightmare for commuters starts this morning.
Seastreak, LLC, and the New Jersey Department of Transportation have partnered to provide a pleasant alternative for Central Jersey commuters to get to Hoboken or Jersey City and home again daily.
Seastreak has two morning departures, 5:45 and 7:45, from the Atlantic Highlands Marina with stops at Paulus Hook in Jersey City and Hoboken. There are three returning departures originating in Hoboken at 3:15 pm, 5:15 pm and 7:15 PM. The fare for a one-way trip to or from either Hudson County terminal and Atlantic Highlands is $12. $5 gets you a ride to or from Jersey City and Hoboken.
The subsidized fare is a bargain. Seastreak’s one-way fare to Manhattan is $26. The fare for a trip on a NJTransit train from Middletown to Hoboken is $14.25, and the train takes longer.
