There are currently no operating subway stations in Yorkville itself.

As of March 2015, bus routes M15, M15 SBS, M31, M72, M79, M86, M96, M98, M101, M102, M103 of the New York City Bus also operate in Yorkville.

Eastern Yorkville is very far from any subway connections, and has among the farthest walks in Manhattan to any subway stations. Parts of the Second Avenue Subway—the 86th Street and 96th Street stations—are under construction in Yorkville under Second Avenue, leading to increased residential construction and real estate prices in advance of the opening of the new subway line.

Yorkville is expected to be served by the Citywide Ferry Service starting in 2018.
