One last question. For the shuttle from Livingston. If you buy single tickets, do they give you a receipt?

Keep in mind this is going to be a LONG route into the city. You're passing through 3 towns before you even get on the train.

West Orange to Livingston - 10 minutes, then wait for shuttle
Livingston to South Orange - probably at least 10-15 minutes then wait for train

Then you have a 40 minute train ride into the city. This sounds painful to me, having to make 2 connections.

Personally I would just drive to Harrison and take the Path.

Have you done this drive from the area in rush hour traffic? I would assume there would be a ton of traffic?

yes it is long, though the train is only 35 min in morning rush hour. the 734 is 30 minutes and has no stops between so and nyc, and 805 is 32 min with 1 stop. to the op- why don't you take to coach usa bus to south orange? it runs from st barbabas hospital across the street to the south orange station!

any idea if the bus is synced with the train or how long the wait is until the next train?

i think what i should do is just try it all 3 ways and then see which works best.

The harrison route would likely be the easiest. Anyone know how much parking is there daily/monthly?

280E to harrison is not terrible, especially before 8am. Volume picks up considerably as you get close to 8am though.

bumping this thread. Looking at different areas of west orange. What is the best area to commute from via Jitney? Does one section have better/more frequent/faster service than another?

Thanks.

Jitney schedules and maps are on the West Orange website.

https://nj-westorange.civicplus.com/index.aspx?NID=595

When I took the jitney it basically sucked; the bus would sometimes show up way ahead of schedule on the way in (so you'd miss it even if you were on time, and had to allow a lot of extra time). They'd show up at South Orange late on the way back, and if the train was late they wouldn't wait for it. I've heard they've improved somewhat.
