I have lived in NJ (currently living in NYC) for several years and I can confirm that it's not legal to pump your own gas. Pull your car at the gas station and someone will attend to you.

While the train option outlined by mazeem is probably the best balance of time and cost for most people, there is a less expensive option for those who have more time. Namely, you can take the MTA subway from Jamaica to the World Trade Center (or from Howard Beach to Fulton Street), and then take the PATH to Hoboken. The fare will be $10.50: $5 for the ...

Immigration and Customs is not easy to judge in the US. It all depends on flight arrival time, number of immigration staff on desks, any delays experienced to all incoming flights, if you get of the plane first or last, number of people to process, types of visas etc etc. In my experience I have waited between 30 minutes in line and 3 hours in line. If I ...

This appears to be an item in the current news. From the Courier-Post about a month ago: TRENTON — New Jersey lawmakers are reigniting a debate about self-service gas just in time for drivers to fuel up as they return from their Memorial Day weekends. New Jersey and Oregon are the only two states in the country that ban drivers from pumping their own ...

Best way of inexpensive travel would be via MTA / rail line. You would catch the AirTran JFK Red line at the JFK airport terminal towards Jamica Station. From there, take the next available line to Penn Station. You have about 10 minutes of walk from Penn Station to PATH station (33rd st) where you can then connect to Hoboken. Travel time: approximately 1 ...

The cheapest option is simple - PATH at $2.75 for the entire trip. Alternatives are NJ Transit train at $5.25, NJ Transit bus at $6.00, Greyhound starting at about $10, and Amtrak which will be even more. Of course there's also Taxi, RideShare, etc - all of which will be far more. Despite being slightly more, the best option is almost certainly to catch a ...

Another option: AirTrain to Jamaica Station Long Island Rail Road to Penn Station Walk one block to 33rd St PATH Take PATH to Hoboken Connect to Hudson-Bergen light rail This would be a bit more expensive than Johns-305's answer, but could be a little faster since LIRR is generally quicker than subway.

LAZ have an online reservation system on their website, however it seems to be unavailable for that particular location. However a different site called Parkopedia lists their price list: Parkopedia shows numerous alternative parking spots in that area, so you shouldn't have an issue finding a spot:

Port Imperial isn't in Jersey City, it's in Weehawken. Ferries to Manhattan run from multiple locations including Hoboken, Jersey City and Weehawken, additionally all these towns and the ferry terminals are connected with the Hudson-Bergen Light Rail; should you need to hop from one place to the other. If you are willing to be flexible in terms of the ...

According to these notes from a 2016 meeting of the PATH Riders' Council, PATH trains run on time 96–97% of the time: Mike Marino welcomed the group with opening comments, thanking them for their ongoing support and contribution to PATH. He provided an overview and update of the ongoing work that has been completed to date during the weekend ...

The answer is no My family, friends and myself have rented cars from Hertz, Alamo, National, and Enterprise and never needed the international driving permit.

Not sure if this is "public transit" by your definition, but the private Suburban Transit bus company, a division of Coach USA, operates a scheduled bus route between Monroe and the Port Authority Bus Terminal. You can easily get from Brooklyn to the PABT by subway. You can use their search form from "New York, NY" to "Monroe Township, NJ", or here is a ...

Now you can buy the bus or train ticket through MYTIX app, so you don't have to keep exact fare or overpay them, Just download the app into your smart phone, buy the ticket online before you board in or when you can get into the bus and request him to give you 2-3 mins so you can buy your ticket. i hope this will help you to save money. link: http://www....

Yes, you can pay more than the required fare. I overpaid my fare several months ago. The trip passed without incident. (What do you imagine the driver would do, refuse to transport you for overpaying?)


3

The NJ Transit train would be around $15, depending on time of day to New Brusnwick. Then, there is at least one bus from the train station to East Brunswick area. If you're going to Rutgers, it's not far from the train station, depending on the campus.

First go to Manhattan by the routes mentioned on this previous question. That way, no need to pay for the sky train. The total cost $2 or $3. Then follow the advice of @phoog above to switch to the path train to Jersey. Total cost is less than $10, so you can buy some small packets of peanuts and a Daily News to read on the train.

If you don't want to stay in the airport until morning, you can continue traveling through the night. The linchpin of this plan is Amtrak Train 65, which departs New York Penn Station at 3 AM and arrives at Philadelphia 30th Street Station at 4:35 AM. Schedule here. The "transit" option of Google Maps shows an itinerary that goes as follows: Airtrain ...

In actuality given where you are going there are public transit options available but again depends on the time of the day. You can take a train from Newark Airport to New Brunswick and then take 815/818 bus to get to the Hilton East Brunswick, so in this case the amount of time you spend in border control and customs won't really matter.

Well it turns out that Cape May has a beach guide online. It lists details of 14 beaches in the area. Each entry begins with "Beach Fees". The following beaches are free, as in you don't need a beach tag: North Wildwood Beach Sea Isle City Beach (Wednesdays only) Upper Township Beach Wildwood Beach Wildwood Crest Beach

I haven't actually been to the Hindenburg Crash Site, but until somebody who has comes along, here's an overview on what information can be found online: As the website of the Navy Lakehurst Historical Society you linked to mentions, you need to call or email them at least two weeks in advance: Everyone wishing to take the tour must adhere to strict ...

I don't know if this will be useful to anyone else, but I found a bus stop in East Brunswick 12 minutes away on RT 18. Only saves $2.10 for a senior citizen, but for other travellers it saves $3. Probably will use that if the usual traveller brings company.

A trip is a one-way ride, so assuming you make 2 trips a day over the 10 days, you'll be taking 20 trips. From filling out the schedule request for NYPenn and Rahway on NJTransit's website: There doesn't appear to be any particular discount for a Ten Trip ticket, since the regular one way fare is $9.25, and the Ten Trip is $92.50. The Ten Trip seems to be ...

As it happens, I passed through the area last weekend and parked at Ferry Avenue to see for myself. Gated parking is indeed open and free on weekends, but not obviously so. The gates are closed, but if you drive up to one, ignoring all the signs about needing a payment card, it will simply open automatically for you. Exiting is the same. The free lots, ...

According to this unofficial New Jersey bus map, Middlesex County operates a local bus service, possibly called either MCAT or Community Shuttle. The M1 and M6 routes appear to serve Monroe Township, and connect to rail service at New Brunswick and Princeton Junction respectively. Their website doesn't seem to be working for me right now, so I can't ...

You could take a taxi from JFK to a PATH station in Manhattan but you might as well just take the JFK AirTrain to Jamaica and get the Long Island Rail Road into Penn Station as it is the fastest and most economical way to get into NYC. You'd then be one block from the 33rd Street PATH station.

Turns out it was not close to full, when I went in the summer. I asked the attendant, and she said they are never full. So the answer is no, it is not likely to be full. It is in fact very very unlikely.

The Retail Gasoline Dispensing Safety Act (N.J.S.A. 34:3A-4 et seq.) and Regulations (N.J.A.C. 12:196) mandates that no person dispense fuel at a gasoline station, unless that person is an attendant who has received fuel dispensing instructions. The Retail Gasoline Dispensing Safety Act also ensures compliance with appropriate safety procedures, the ...
