Massive Hoboken Connect project to transform historic terminal is underway. It only took 20 years.
...
The terminal hadn’t yet turned 100 when NJ Transit set out to bring sweeping improvements, but it took until last month for the project to break ground with the demolition of an old train building. The result will transform Hoboken’s primary point of entry via mass transit, a moment nearly 20 years in the making that within five years will make the current hodgepodge layout of the hub little more than a memory.
...
When the project is complete, which Barry optimistically hopes will be in 2029, the often-flooded Warrington Plaza will be a pedestrian-only gateway to both Hoboken’s waterfront and the historic terminal building. The roadway and bus terminal will be modernized and streamlined for ease of access.

Inside the terminal, a cavernous second-floor space that has been closed to the public amid deteriorating conditions will be restored for public use. An office building will become the tallest building one sees upon exiting from transit into the city, and a residential tower just a block away will similarly alter Hoboken’s skyline.

How about expanding ferry options from Hoboken terminal to West 39th Street, East 34th street, Downtown Brooklyn, Williamsburg and Long Island City. These additional offerings would benefit local residents and connections from HBLRT and NJ Transit Hoboken division lines. I would also add weekend and holiday service to Citi field, I once took the Sea streak from Atlantic Highlands to a Mets game at Citified. Not only was it a beautiful trip it cut a ton of time off the drive from Monmouth County to the stadium.

Ferries are among the most expensive modes of transportation, with higher operating costs. For example one report notes the NYC Ferry has the city paying an average $6 subsidy per passenger.
