Getting to Penn Station from Newark Airport

by Juli_br

Hi everyone, I'd like to know the best and cheapest transportation from newark airport to penn station.
Thanks in advance.

Here's a link to info on the Airtrain which connects EWR to New Jersey Transit, which you take to NY Penn Station. (Be aware there is also a Penn Station in Newark, NJ that you pass through....do not get off there.) It's quick, cheap and easy.

You can download a pdf in Portuguese!

best != cheapest

cheapeast = NJ Transit bus + PATH
best = hired car service

you decide

Re: Getting to Penn Station from Newark Airport

Maybe not cheapest ....but taxi would be best !!!! you do not want to travel around newark on buses....or trains .......

FRED, what's wrong with traveling from Newark by train or bus? I've been doing it for many years and never had a problem, and never heard reports of anyone else having a problem either.

Taxi from EWR to midtown Manhattan is around $60-$70, by the way.

Is it dangerous?
Do I need to make a connection?

Re: Getting to Penn Station from Newark Airport

I always thought they have a shuttle bus service... Anyone know?

Re: Getting to Penn Station from Newark Airport

Juli br -- taking the train from EWR to Penn Station is NOT dangerous at all! You do need to make a connection, which is very easy as well. There are plenty of signs and plenty of people around. I have given you a link, above, to all the information you need. Read through that, it's very clear.

xymmot -- Coach/Olympia offers an express bus from EWR to midtown Manhattan that's very cheap and easy as well. But it does not go to Penn Station. It runs along 42nd Street, stopping at the Port Authority, Bryant Park and near Grand Central Terminal. Here is a link to information:

There are also a few shared van companies, but these are NEVER recommended! If you want to learn why, all you need to do is google Super Shuttle or Go Airlink to read horror stories.

10028 The last time I was in Newark it did not look to good to me .....and I was in the Newark penn station....maybe it has changed !!!!

Re: Getting to Penn Station from Newark Airport

by Juli_br

I finally took the bus to Grand Central(U$15) and then I took a cab to the hotel, which cost me 6 dollars. So, It was ok.
Thanks for the help, everyone.

Re: Getting to Penn Station from Newark Airport

by penpoison

cheapest is NJ Transit bus from Newark Airport to Newark Penn Station. then the NJ Path train to New York Penn Station. it takes about 2 hours and cost is about less than $5.00

there was no other option at 3 am in the morning for public transport including olympia or nj transit trains directly to and from newark airport beside taxi.

Travel Tips for New York City

Lincoln center

by isolina_it

Located on West 62nd through West 66th streets between Columbus and Amsterdam avenues, the Lincoln Center has been the center of New York's performance art scene since the 1950s. Its various venues and free outdoor concerts attract nearly five million people every year. From orchestras, to ballet, to movie screenings, the Lincoln Center features it all.

The city that never sleeps

by nyc4mimi

24-7, any deli, pizzeria, bar with happy hour in Mid Town. The good, bad and ugly. The World Trade Center, visited a few years ago, then watched the progression of Ground Zero. The memories will live forever. Its the only place in my life time that I can go to Macys Thanksgiving parade in millions of people and wonder what will happen next.

The Empire State Building

by SirRichard

In spite of the Twin Towers, this is The Building of Manhattan. For me is, without doubt, the most charming skycrapper ever built.

The building has created a Language of Lights that has its own grammar:

This is the standard annual lighting schedule with the related events:
Red, Black & Green: Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day
Green: St. Patrick's Day, March of Dimes, Rainforest Awareness,
Earth Day
Red, White & Blue: Presidents' Day, Armed Forces Day, Memorial Day, Flag Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Veterans' Day
Red: St. Valentine's Day, Fire Department Memorial Day, Big Apple Circus
Red & Blue: Equal Parents Day / Childrens Rights
Yellow & White: Spring / Easter Week
Blue, White & Blue: Israel Independence Day, First Night of Chanukah
Blue: Police Memorial Day, Child Abuse Prevention
Purple & White: Alzheimer's Awareness
Red, Yellow & Green: Portugal Day
Lavender & White: Stonewall Anniversary / Gay Pride
Purple, Teal, White: National Osteoporosis Society
Red & White: Pulaski Day, Red Cross
Red, White & Green: Columbus Day
Blue & White: Greek Independence Day, United Nations Day
Red & Yellow: Autumn
Black, Yellow & Red: German Reunification Day

Free wifi spots

by marielexoteria

I have used the following free wifi spots:
- Lincoln center
- Union square: slow surfing, sometimes it took me a few refreshes to load some pages.
- World Financial Center: sitting by the Hudson river

Times square has free wifi but I didn't try it.

I managed to get a signal and surf at:
- Red Mango at St. Mark's place (not their wifi)

Take it all in

by HispanicYob

Just absorb being there in one of NYC's biggest areas. Make sure, if you can, to catch a Broadway show. I didn't all the times I've been there, which is unfortunate, but either my time was limited or no money. Seeing all the advertising signs in Times Square.
