    Avis Rental Car

    by blueskyjohn Written Mar 16, 2015

    You do not need to rent a car to get around Hoboken, but if you are staying in Hoboken and want to get out of the city to explore other parts of New Jersey there are several rental car companies in town. This Avis is at the far north of town located in a small booth inside a parking garage. The staff are very friendly and the rental process is very fast. I use them often when I need to travel for work.

    They are located at 1450 Bloomfield Street inside the Hudson Tea Parking Garage, Hoboken‎, NJ

    Bus, Subway, Ferry

    by ForestqueenNYC Updated Jul 11, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The best ways to get to Hoboken from Manhattan are the PATH train, the bus from Port Authority bus station, or the ferry from the Finanacial District or the World Trade Center. All let you off at the old Lakawanna train station. From there it is an easy walk around the center of the town. If you take the ferry you will also have a really pretty view of the Manhattan skyline.

    Path Trains

    The best way to get to Hoboken from the city is the Path trains. You can take them from 34th, 23rd, 14th, 9th and Christopher on 6th avenue and also from the World Trade Center.

    It will leave you about enough the end of Washington and 1st.

    Fares are $1.50 and you can usually use a pay per ride metro card or a path ticket.

    PATH Trains

    You can get to Hoboken via the PATH train from Newark or NYC. It's very easy and much better than driving in! The PATH runs every few minutes, and service is slower on the weekends.

    The easist way back and forth...

    by JERICO Written Aug 25, 2002

    The easist way back and forth between Hoboken and Manhattan is by train (the PATH - $1.50 per way - with one line going between 33rd street right near Penn Station, and stopping intermittantly down the western side of Manhattan - and another line between Hoboken and the World Trade Center, which also goes along to Newark).

    There is also a ferry (NY Waterway - $2 per way) that leaves from the western edge of the World Financial Center and goes to the Hoboken PATH station. The ferry is much nicer than the PATH, and generally takes less than 10 minutes.

    NY cabbies may or may not take you to NJ, depending on the time and the driver. If you opt to try to get a cab, keep in mind you are crossing a state line and it won't be cheap - but negotiate a price anyway (you shouldn't pay more than $25).
