The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey announced a temporary weekend ferry between lower Manhattan and Jersey City.

For the next six weekends, the Port Authority says a ferry will travel between the Paulus Hook Terminal and the World Financial Center Terminal.

The trip is expected to take seven minutes and will cost $2.50 each way, with children under 5 riding for free.

They say the service is for weekend PATH riders because the Exchange Place and World Trade Center PATH Stations will be closed most weekends in 2014 for projects including post-Sandy clean-up, track repairs, and safety work.

The Port Authority says the program will end May 4, unless they decide ridership has been successful enough to continue.
