EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ -- The Nets and NY Waterway are offering fans free ferry and bus service to any weekend home game from Midtown Manhattan beginning Saturday, November 12 when the Nets host the Houston Rockets at the Continental Airlines Arena.

NY Waterway Nets branded buses will take fans from the terminal to Gate C at the Continental Airlines Arena. Buses leaves from Gate C at the arena 30 minutes after the final buzzer to return fans to the terminal for the ferry back to Manhattan.
“We wanted to make it easier than ever for our fans across the river to attend a Nets game,” said Nets CEO Brett Yormark. “By partnering with NY Waterway, our ferry and bus service gives fans free access to reach our arena and continues our goal to become the most accessible franchise in sports.”
