This is my first question on this site, sorry if it isn't appropriate.
I'm trying to find the best way to get from Brooklyn, NY to Monroe, NJ, or at least as close as possible, by public transit, on weekends. Monroe is big, but I don't want to give addresses for obvious reasons. It's near exit 8A on the turnpike.
The best I could seem to find was New Brunswick station, which is 26 minutes away by car. I'm having a hard time believing that that is the best one can do, but I'm out of ideas.
