TRANSIT FLY Review: Newark Liberty Airport offers a wide variety of high
quality airport transit options. To/from Manhattan passengers have both NJ
Transit & Amtrak Trains to choose from (via the Newark Airport Train Station &
AirTrain) to New York's Penn Station. In addition, the Newark Airport Express
Coach provides fast and reliable service service to the Port Authority and Grand
Central Station. If heading to/from New Jersey cities, NJ Transit offers both
frequent Trains and Buses to Newark & Hoboken (in the North) and Elizabeth,
Perth Amboy, Linden, Metropark, Princeton Jct. & Trenton in the South. At
TransitFly.com our favorite option to/from Manhattan is the 6-8 minutes
frequency of NJ Transit trains to NY Penn Station during peak hours.
