The company says a tugboat has freed a New York Waterway ferry that ran aground in New Jersey Thursday.

The company says the ferry Bravest was returning from New York to its dock in Middletown NJ when it became stuck due to an "extremely low tide." There were no passengers on the vessel.


The company says the vessel did not sustain damage and will be back in service during the afternoon and evening commute.
