New York Pass

There is always plenty to do in New York. However sightseeing might not be the cheapest experience and the best places get really crowded. This is why a team of real, life-long New Yorkers created the New York Pass - a tourist card to save you time and money. Be smart in 2014, don't wait with the crowds and visit 80+ NYC Attractions for no additional charge. 

How It Works

The New York Pass is a ‘smart card’ - like a credit card with a computer chip inside - which allows you completely cash free entry to over 80 New York tourist attractions. It’s a bit like an ‘all you can eat’ buffet - once you’ve bought your New York Pass you don’t have to pay to get into any of the attractions covered by the pass and the more sights you see, the more money you save. 

When in New York, simply show the attendant at a New York Pass attraction your card, they will swipe it through a special machine and you will be allowed entry.


Redeem your voucher at the Gray Line Visitor's Center at 777 8th Avenue between 46th and 47th street to obtain your smart card.  Vouchers can be redeemed on any date for up to one year from the date of issue.

The smart card records when and where you first use your Pass, as well as how long the Pass will remain valid. This means your Pass is activated the moment that you first use it at an attraction or service, NOT from when you redeem your voucher. Your New York Pass is then valid for the number of days that you've purchased - be it 1, 2, 3, 5 or 7 days. It is important to note that a ‘day’ is based on a calendar day, not a 24 hour period.


The New York Pass is valid for use on consecutive days only. You can visit each attraction just once with the New York Pass. At the end of your validity period, the pass will expire and will no longer allow access to attractions. If, for example, you used a three day pass for the first time on Monday, your pass will cease working at the end of Wednesday, regardless of how often you have used it in between.
