During the rush hour when 99.99% of the commuters are going to work and take the ferry, the fare is collected only at the ferry terminal. Same thing applies on the way home. Free during rush hour only for those not borading or exiting at the ferry terminal.
So for example, if you live in New Dorp and work in Stapleton you get a free ride.
Off-peak someone will collect a fare.
