comment What is the fastest way to get from Newark Airport to Penn Station, New York? (Excluding cabs)
@Karlson: all trains go in both directions. You're not suggesting that NJ Transit from EWR to Newark/Penn Station, change to PATH, then change to another PATH train at Journal Square and ride it 7 stops to the 33rd street -- that all that would be better than a 3-stop straight shot on NJ Transit, are you?

@Karlson: I said both arrive and depart (at NY Penn). The trains go in both directions. So, as the OP wants to go from EWR to NY Penn station, this is the train.

comment Recommendation for accommodation in New York City
In this price range, you're definitely looking at Airbnb or Couchsurfing.

@Zach: PATH trains would be a great deal slower. It's a crowded subway-type train and you need two of them to get to Newark Penn Station. From there, you need to take another train (NJ Transit) for one stop to get to the Newark Airport station. Why not take NJ Transit from NY Penn straight to EWR?

comment Cheap but comfortable way to get from Kingston, ON, Canada to Toronto?
Kingston is a major stop on the Toronto-Montreal line (all trains, including expresses, stop there). VIA Rail has recently introduced a $39 non-refundable, internet-only fare between Toronto and Montreal.

comment How to travel from Montreal to Quebec City without a car?
Seats on VIA trains are way more comfortable than any bus seats. There are new luggage restrictions: either one 40-lb. carry-on piece and one 25-lb. - or three 25-lb. pieces. The 25-lb pieces must be like the airline carry-ons, the 40-lb. piece must be within the size limit (the sum of dimensions < 62 inches).

comment Getting to Reagan Airport (DCA) early in the morning
Thanks for the answer. I'll be staying on the DC side as all of my meetings will be in the district. (I'd ride over to the Virginia side the night before after all meetings, if I could walk from hotel to the airport, but I don't think that's realistic). On your advice, I've contacted several hotels to see if they can arrange a taxi at 3 in the morning and one of them quickly replied that they routinely do just that for all of their guests leaving from DCA early in the morning.
