How do I get the Passes?
When you buy your discount package here you will receive a voucher by email within a few minutes. To get the passes you go to the Visitors Center, close to Times Square (the address will be on the voucher). Here, you hand over the printed voucher or show it on your smartphone as an e-ticket. Both passes are activated at that moment. The bus pass is valid for 72 hours and the attractions pass for 14 days from that point.
If you’d like to visit more than 7 attractions, I recommend buying a New York Pass. You can read more about the New York Pass here.
