If you are "carless", the bus is your only option, as it will require a car to get to any of the nearby train stations.
The bus you can take is with the Lakeland Bus company from Port Authority, with several stops in Parsippany. The trip is a direct trip.
There is no need to go to Willowbrook Mall and take another bus.
The most convenient place to get the bus when in Parsippany is from Rt 46, on the corner of Rt 46 and North Beverwyck Rd.
There are other stops, too, so you can call and find out what is the most convenient stop based on where you will be working.
The ride is about 40-45 min.. .
The schedule at the end of the day runs about once an hour.
There are many commuters, so you will have lots of company!
Actually, if you are commuting FROM Manhattan TO Parsippany in the morning, your ride should be easier, as the bulk of the morning commute will be going INTO the city, not out of it!.
my husband just got a job in Parsipany and now wondering where to live. Id love to stay in Manhattan, but we don't have a car either. And weighing our options. Did you figure out the commute? Id love to know how its been for you!!! I'd greatly appreciate your help and opinion on the matter!!!
to those who mentioned using the train....the poster said she doesn't have a CAR, and needs to commute to and from to Parsippany without one. Any train would require driving to the station, as there are no trains in walking distance to Parsippany (and we don't even know where in Parsippany the job is!).
I don't believe you have a choice here - and will have to get a car
Congrats to you on your new job opportunity. Depending on which part of Parsippany you relocate to, there is a bus that travels to the Port Authority from there and the midtown direct train to Penn Station that stops in Morris Plains which is located within the vicinity.
If I can be of further assistance in your relocation, please let me know.
All the best,
