You can also pick up an NJT train at the Cherry Hill Station off of 70 that goes to 30th Street and park for free there. Looks to be a 30 minute train ride, but probably only a 12 minute car ride. Maybe the train would be cheaper than $5 dollar plus parking every day? No idea, but may be worth looking into.

Nevermind use 406 philly direct or preferably PATCO to philly and use train. However 451 also takes you to the trains at lindenwood PATCO/NJT station directly where you can head to philly for keystone service you won't even need to drive to the station if 451 is walking distance from you

What? Thats so confusing and bus service in SJ is lacking.... Take NJT Atlantic line to 30th Street then grab a Amtrak Keystone train to Newark.

The busmaster is right, Nexis, but missed the transfer. Take PATCO to 8th & Market (buy a transfer in NJ) transfer to SEPTA at 8th St (Market-Frankford subway) to 30th St.

I agree with Nexis. PATCO and 8th street MFL connection is an extra flight of steps, running around 8th street station, and an unnecessary transfer. I suggested the ACL because the bulk of Marlton is off of 70 (The Marlton Turnpike) and the NJT has no stops between Cherry Hill and 30th Street. I'm always a fan of minimizing connections which can be easily missed and screw up everything afterwards. On that note, if I personally was leaving early enough every day, and was getting a 25% pay raise, I'd consider driving directly to 30th street, pay the bridge toll, and pay for monthly parking at 30th street. That should be no more than a 20-25 minute drive from Marlton at 6 AM and back after 6 PM. Time is money after all!

For those that are suggesting going thru Philadelphia -

Isn't it more direct driving to Trenton and starting there, than backtracking from Voorhees/Marlton and going west into Philadelphia?

If the OP is Cherry Hill as in from 08002, then maybe going through Philadelphia isn't a big deal, but if he is from 08003/08043/08053 zip codes it's somewhat lengthy.

OP, I don't know about the Philly-NYC Amtrack, but if you are planning on taking the NJ Transit Northeast Corridor train, it's easiest to just drive up to Hamilton station. From Voorhees, I did it in exactly 36 minutes on Saturday. I was driving fast, but hey, it shows that it can be done.

Yeah, that change is significant. I don't think I could do it. I know someone who commutes from Cherry Hill to NYC every day. I'm not so sure he likes it very much. He doesn't get home until like 8-8:30 every night. Granted if you could solidify the telecommute thing, that makes it much more interesting.
