Subway and Bus
Getting to Randall’s Island Park via subway and bus is easy! Via subway, you take the 4, 5, or 6 train to 125th street. Once there, you can hop on the X80 express bus at 125th street and Lexington avenue, and the X80 will take you directly to the event entrance. If you wish to walk to the event from 125th street, you can walk east on 125th street, cross the RFK Bridge, and you’re there! The distance from the 125th subway station to the festival is 1 mile (the equivalent of 20 city blocks).
Please note that we are working closely with the MTA to ensure that an appropriate number of buses are added for show days and that lines are kept to an absolute minimum. Please also note that the X80 express bus collects a $6.00 round-trip fare when you board the bus, but if you have come from the subway only $3.50 is deducted.
Event Ferries will be traveling to and from Randall’s Island each day of the event, throughout the day. Departures will take place from East 35th Street Ferry Landing located at the intersection of East 35th Street at the FDR Drive, with ferries running approximately every 15 minutes, starting at 3:00PM. Ferries to the island will stop at 9pm and ferries from the island will not stop until all ferry ticket buyers are off the island.
This is without a doubt the easiest way to get to/from the shows, plus there will be music playing on the speakers and there is a full bar on most boats.
