It seems like a bad idea for me, and a few volunteers, to drive 30 miles each way to the airport, on the bookends of a 3 day getaway weekend! What are the mass transit combinations (NJT train/ bus and/or PATH) to New Brunswick? I can easily fetch the guests from the New Brunswick NJT station or the Rutgers campus. Thanks a whole lot!

I'm flying from Syracuse to Newark then from Newark to Heathrow on the 9th December 2014 (I know it's Christmas season and there're bound to be some issues). But I also recall that usually flights from Syracuse landed in Newark of Terminal C and departs from this same terminal for flights to Heathrow.

      To all:

      First, let me thank you in advance for any answers or comments on my question.

      I will be traveling via Amtrak from Wilmington, DE to EWR to catch an international flight.

      Amtrak has a connection in Northern New Jersey which they call the Newark Airport connection.

      My questions are:

      How easy is the connection to the connecting train to EWR?

      How long to the terminals?

      We will have several pieces of luggage...problem with space for luggage and/or help available?

      I presume that getting to the international terminal shouldn't be more difficult to any of the other terminals...correct?

      In general, I am basically wondering whether taking the train to EWR from Wilmington is easy and worth it?

      Anyone adding some insights will be much appreciated!

      I thought somebody might have an idea for us here...

      Here's our problem: We are going to the Caribbean in November via Newark and on the way back from there we are going to spend a few days in NYC. Which means we need summer clothes for the British Virgin Islands but we also need a winter coat for the days in New York. I am not too excited about the idea of taking my winter coat with me all the time because I am sure it won't fit into my bag and I am sure I will be stared at if I wear it on the way from the airport to the hotel in the USVI and especially on the ferry to the BVI.

      Is there any luggage storage facility in Newark airport where I could leave the winter stuff for 10 days? Any other ideas?

      by sabsi Online Now Mar 2, 2008 at 2:14 AM


      We will have a 17 hour layover in Newark in November. As our plane leaves early in morning on the 2nd day we thought about spending one night in a hotel in Newark that night.

      Does anybody have any recommendations? All we need is clean, cheapish and easy to reach.

      Also I have read about Jersey Gardens Outlet mall. Considering that a) we will be tired when we arrive in Newark, b) we will have 4 nights in New York on the way back and c) I love outlet mall shopping, do you think we should stay near this mall and skip our planned first trip into NYC and leave it for the way back?

      Another idea was that I would love to go to Ellis Island museum. Is there a shortcut from EWR to get there?

      Our plan will land in EWR at 1355 and the next one will leave at 9:30 the next day. Coming from Germany we will have to queue at immigration.

      I am thankful for every advise you can give me.
