One of the unique aspects of our 07104 zip is that we have access to a gorgeous light rail system. So if you buy or rent in 07104, you can often stroll through an Olmstead-designed park every day as part of your commute. This means you see the glorious four seasons, the amazing fall colors, the world-renowned cherry blossoms, the snowflakes, all as part of your daily commute. I commuted for 8 years walking through Branch Brook park to the Davenport station. In the last month, all new walkways have been put in by the Essex County Parks and these beautiful walks mean that you can comfortably walk to the train rain or shine.This train drop you at Newark Penn Station and you can get pretty much anywhere from there: to Newark Airport, NY Penn station and all parts throughout NJ and the Eastern seaboard on Amtrak. ... more

Hello Jahvanui:

Have you considered using Google Maps, and then switching to "Earth".

Check the link:,-74.2133124,1383m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m2!3m1!1s0x89c25333ea52d605:0x13249a72f2f7a1c4

I assume that you are focused on arriving to Port Authority ("PA") at 42nd and 8th ave, because you need to arrive to "Midtown" area of Manhattan.

The #32 DeCamp bus stops at the corner of Union and Park Avenue, 0.4 miles from 11 Elmwood Ave, Belleville, NJ (the page I saw your question on). Or, if you walk or drive about 1 mile over to Clifton Commons, a shopping center in Nutley, NJ, which has free commuter "park and ride" spaces, there is (1) NJ Transit bus #192 or 195 (check the NJ Transit site) that runs on Kingsland Avenue and goes into PA, and there is (2) a NJ Transit bus that runs on Route 3 (behind Clifton Commons), that is an express bus into PA.

You can also drive to Newark Penn Station (about 15 minutes from Belleville, depending on traffic), get a monthly Edison parking pass for $199 (there is one right behind Penn Station Newark that is super safe), and either take the NJ transit PATH train to World trade center ($80 monthly unlimited pass), switching at Journal Square, I believe (by walking across the platform) to go uptown and arrive at 33rd street (PA is at 38th street) - OR you can also get a slew of regular trains that stop at Newark Penn Station, then Secaucus, but then go on to NY Penn Station (which is at 34th and 8th ave). They also have a monthly pass option.

Of course, you can also stay on the PATH to world trade center, then go outside, walk a couple blocks, and get on the subway system (c,e,2,3, or 4/5).

Blocks in Manhattan are short running N-S, so there isn't much distance between NY Penn and PA.

I agree that NJ Transit has better reliability than DeCamp; it also has more busses running in and out of NY - morning, about every 15-30 minutes depending on the line. That's particularly helpful when oyu get out at different times each day.

I've done all of these, currently use PATH because my company relocated to Church Street and is literally 1 block from world trade center.

Hi Tashema, I believe the closest train station is Newark Penn Station in downtown Newark. The trains there will take you to different points of New Jersey, to New York Penn Station and Philadelphia. You can also catch the PATH and Amtrak trains there as well. ... more

NJ Transit has a great web site where you just type in the address of the property and it will tell you where ALL of the nearby bus stops and train stations are.

It will work not only with East Orange, but any town in New Jersey,

The CC Bus seems to go up twice a year. It's about $80 for a 10 trip ticket pack and no, you cannot buy a monthly pass. You can buy a yearly pass to the Park and Ride at the Turtle Back Zoo/South Mountain Arena. That costs around $400 a year and it's indoors and makes the commute a bit shorter and there are many more express buses. I agree with an earlier commenter here that the between the train and the bus it's about the same chance of having problems whether it's traffic/tunnel issues or a train issues. The bus does have a no cell phone policy so think of it as a zen transition. ... more

Hi jrdo

here's the link to the Decamp schedule - know that the Roseland bus route #66R does not run on weekends. The #66 does run on weekends, however.

Check out their routes from W caldwell - the #33 line and also the #66

As far as parking along the Roseland route (which is basically Passaic Ave & Eagle Rock Ave), there isn't any designated lot along the way.

There is a very large parking lot at Stop and Shop (formerly Kings grocery store ) where the route originates, on Bloomfield Ave., near Passaic Ave.
You might want to verify this, but I believe you can park there.

Another option is to drive 10-15 min to the S Mountain Arena on Northfiled Ave. in W Orange and make use of their multi-level parking garage - you will also have the convenience of more express routes in the morning - check out CoachUSA for their schedules (bus #77).

Best wishes........

Hi Mock - there is no direct bus to Coddington Terr.

The best you could do is take a bus to the Livingston Mall and walk (maybe it will be 20-25 min walk).................or, (it depends where on Coddington ) you might also take a bus (if there is one - I'd need to check) that stops at the corner of Northfield Rd and Hillside Avenue. You'd still have to walk to Coddington.

Hope this helps.
Best wishes......

Over the years I have commuted to the city by Bus, Train, Path from Harrison, by car parking at Port Authority, and drive to Ferry at Port Imperial (Weehawken). No one way is perfect. From West Orange I like the Path best. In general I love taking the Ferry. It is a great feeling on the boat as you view the skyline and feel the breeze on the water. Various buses are there when the boat docks to take you cross town and downtown.

Hi, Elliot Hermann,

If you're looking for a train connection, Montclair and Millburn are probably your two best choices. Having taught in Montclair for 37 years, I can assure you that it's a commuter's paradise. Trains run frequently and can be accessed at several locations.

I would be more than happy to provide further information. Please email your questions to
