I am a paramus resident and realtor and my wife commutes into the city from Paramus and has no issue getting a seat. She usually leaves the park and ride on ridgewood ave around 730-8am and gets in the the city by 845am. If you like anymore information on paramus you can visit my site http://www.SellWithMelNJ.com for paramus home search and FORECLOSURE search.
Sorry, I can't answer your Paramus question, but I am sure someone will come along who can!
I can, however, tell you that the bus commute from my area, which is in Essex County, can range from 45-55 min., depending on which town you're in, or 30 min. if you take the midtown direct train.
If you decide to expand your search into other parts of NJ, please feel free to reach out to me for more information!
