IKEA Express

New York Water Taxi runs a daily shuttle from Wall Street's Pier 11 in Manhattan to Brooklyn's IKEA Home furnishings store! Landing right at the IKEA store's own dock in Red Hook, the IKEA Express allows passengers a convenient way to shop – no cars, no trains, no costly ground taxis! Bring back as much as will fit in your blue IKEA bag, or have your furniture delivered by the IKEA store.

Saturday & Sunday: Free

Weekday customers who spend $10.00 or more at the IKEA store, will receive an immediate $5.00 credit on their purchase when they present their New York Water Taxi ticket at checkout. Please note, in order to receive a credit, you will need a printed version of your New York Water Taxi ticket. IKEA will not validate an electronic ticket.
