Vehicles On CNJ Ferries

Postby CNJ Fan 4evr » Wed Aug 13, 2014 11:20 am

Watching old films of the Jersey City Terminal/ferry sheds I can see cars,trucks, and B&O busses driving off the ferries.Did they go off at the far north slip or did they use any of the slips? Where did they enter/exit at ? Without the ferry shed there now it is hard to place how they operated.

Any of the four slips at Jersey City. Vehicles made an immediate right turn after driving over the bridge from the ferry and exited at the north end of the ferry shed by turning left onto Johnston Avenue.
