Hi Gregory,

Penn Station is not far at all from this rental. Walking it can take about 15 mins or you can hop on
the bus and be there in 5 minutes.
Let me know if you like to set up a viewing.

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........

If you are considering buying or renting in Newark New Jersey you have multiple options for reaching New York City. Just as a place to focus...You can take the Broad Street Train, or Penn Station Train to Penn Station Manhattan.

Penn Station, Newark also offers bus service

New Jersey Transit, found at offers bus routes that go into the city on a regular schedule as well.

Where in the city you live will effect what route will be best for you.

There are numerous options and variables to consider. I used to drive to Harrison and take the Path line that runs up 6th Ave. Liked the Path since it runs round the clock and long hours were pat of the job. Also liked that i dropped me right by my office in Chelsea. The Path itself is inexpensive and crowded. Seitched jobs and new office was by Port Authority. Tooke the Community Coach #77 bus. Expensive, but comfortable. Once again, dropped me close to my office. My neighbor works in Penn Plaza. She takes the Jitney to South Orange and then Midtown Direct to Penn Station. Each of those commutes is within an hour door to door. Point is that it all depends on yourt destination within NYC, hours that you need service, budget, and need for comfort while in transit. Good luck ... more

Ok, the real estate "housewives" here aren't serious about this question/answer forum. My questions (which I need answered) were also a means for me to see how attentive these ladies would be toward those of us from NYC who are considering buying in Livingston/Short Hills/Summit. Well, they must be picking up their husbands' shirts at the dry cleaners instead of focusing on building their business.... ... more

Hello Festivus:
To midtown Manhattan there is excellent bus service from various locations in Livingston to Port Authority terminal. It is approximatley 45 minutes to an hour scheduled trip.
Some commuters drive to Newark to connect to NJ Transit train system into Penn Station NY. Another option is to drive to Newark and take the PATH train system into NYC. The PATH has service to lower Manhattan. An option is to drive to Harrison and catch the PATH there which is just one stop out of Newark.

If you need answers any other questions about the Livingston area, contact me via email at

Hi Elliot
Well - here are your options:
Yes, you can drive to Harrison via rt 280 (about 20 min), park, and take the Path train. Many commuters do this. It's a viable option.

As far as getting a permit parking in a train town - S. Orange does have a NJ Transit lot, so you don't have to live there to get a parking permit (that's the good news)...... but the waiting list is very long (last time I called, it was 5-7 years - that's the bad news). Montclair is about a 20 min drive from Livingston, depending on where you are in Livingston, and there had been parking available in the fairly new NJ Transit lot near Montclair State University. Please visit my web site for train and bus route information links..

Unfortunately, most of the other 'train towns" only give permits to residents.

The bus is the other option. If you don't mind a short drive to the park and drive area in W. Orange, near the WO arena, you can get express busses in the morning, shortening the commute time.
Please don't hesitate to reach out to me with any other questions. I would welcome the opportunity to help you.
Good luck with your move!

There's a bus that goes out of Port Authority to Roseland, but if you're not on the route you could be facing a fairly hefty walk from the closest bus stop to your place of business.
