IF you look at the map on the linked page (post #3, I think), it is the SAME company. And as I posted before, there is NO insurance listed with the FMCSA (Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration) which is MANDATORY if you are running a vehicle licensed in one state (someone reported the van in Cape Liberty had NY plates on it) across state lines AND providing a commercial passenger service. So let the buyer beware.

I am making a guess that this company just hires some local guy to find a parking lot and provide a van. I sure wouldn't want to be in an accident because I will bet there is NO commercial insurance and if you are injured, there will be NO coverage.
yeah i just wanted to check but didn't have my laptop..well i did, just no convenient internet access..i wish they had a REAL starbucks next to the pier as opposed to the kiosk in the grocery store...

i was just curious......(ok, and a LITTLE bored.....)

A quick note to those who thing Cape Liberty parking is expensive. If you go across the river the rate is $35 an night. "I'm just sayin'" it's all relevant.

Default Dry Dock issues?

I can't tell if the paint overspray problem is still an issue? We were planning on having someone drive us to Summit tomorrow but have just decided to drive and park, and would like to park at the pier. (no time to buy the cover!)

I have read posts that it supposedly hasn't been an issue lately, but hoped someone would have more recent experience - thanks!

(I also looked for "safest" places in the lot to park, but wasn't able to find anything recent...)

No one has reported paint spray issues for quite some time. I'd be tempted to park in the lot closest to the cruise ship, which would mean driving into the first lot, going halfway through and making a left towards the opening in the fence, crossing the inbound road to the other side, and parking. This will give you easier access to your car when you disembark and I think it's further away from any paint spray operation.
