ATLANTIC HIGHLANDS, NJ – Atlantic Highlands officials are working with Seastreak LLC and Middletown Township in anticipation of the possible increase of passengers at the Atlantic Highlands Ferry Terminal beginning next week.
“We are carefully reviewing all of our options for additional parking in anticipation of the influx of bus and rail riders converging on the Borough next week if the New Jersey Transit strike were to occur,” said Adam Hubeny, Atlantic Highlands Borough Administrator. We are doing everything we can to accommodate an increase in ferry passengers.”
“We expect parking to be at a premium” said Chief Jerry Vasto. In anticipation of this, Seastreak encourages customers to utilize carpooling and drop-offs. In addition, according to Jack Bevins, Seastreak’s Vice President, Seastreak will priority board current Seastreak ticket holders.
If Seastreak fills their boats to capacity, the police will place sign boards near Highway 36 and First Avenue advising commuters that Seastreak is full and that the parking lots are closed. We ask that you plan ahead and come up with an alternate plan if this should occur. In addition, there will be no overnight parking allowed in any of the Seastreak parking lots.
Seastreak has been operating out of the Atlantic Highlands Marina since 1989 and has been a great partner with the Borough and Municipal Marina. They move over 2500 passengers a day to and from New York.
