Car will depend on the time you're traveling into JC, but I'd figure on anywhere from 45 minutes to 1.5 hours (err on the high side....). By train you'd have to take the Montclair-Boonton line or the Morristown line into Newark Broad Street Station, trek over to Newark Penn Station, and then switch to the PATH trains to Jersey City. The train ride just from Mount Olive to Broad Street is an hour and 15 minutes, and then the rest of your journey will consume at least another 45 minutes, so figure two hours minimum.

Depending on where in JC it may be faster to continue on the Morristown Line to Hoboken and take the HBLR or PATH down toward downtown. Either way I doubt you'd be able to do it in under 2 hours via transit.

I'd drive. It's not the best commute, people do worse, but it's definitely not a picnic. Construction aside on 78, I'd take that way. I have a friend who commutes from Long Valley to Bayonne every day, and he's living to tell the tale

honestly- is any commute to JC a picnic? If so, where do we have to live??? Let me guess, either the projects or something well over $1M+!

Seriously, I just liked the new-ness look of Mount Olive, (the homes) but would me and my girls (3 & 4) be bored stiff? We are trying to avoid being house-poor...and seriously considering renting a house instead of buying altogether. If we were to rent- would morris county be the best ie, Madison??
