BAYONNE, NJ – The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey has cleared the way for the city to negotiate to build a commuter ferry terminal on the Bayonne waterfront.

In a press release sent from Mayor Jimmy Davis’ 2018 campaign office, Davis said the city is looking to build a terminal at the former Military Ocean Terminal (MOTBY) across from the Bayonne Golf Course, a close walk from new residential developments currently being constructed.

"With the development of MOTBY finally moving forward after decades of inaction and broken promises, Bayonne is truly on the brink of a total revitalization that will secure our city's future for the next 100 years -- but the missing piece has always been commuter ferry service," Davis said. "This is a true game changer for Bayonne that will help us continue with the development of MOTBY and it will give our residents another option to commute into Manhattan.”

The city will be seeking requests for proposals in the coming weeks and months from ferry operators interested in building and operating the site, according to the press release.

Davis said: “We are finally beginning to deliver on the promises made decades ago, that will mean millions of dollars in new tax revenue, expanded transportation and more investments in the things residents need, like renovations to our parks and expanded services.”
