i am supposed to go to a info session at Ackerman hall at 5:30 this wednesday. What is the safest way to get there and get back to hoboken at this time? Could drive though wondering if parking garages are safe there. Also considering PATH to newark penn then taxi or light rail to washington st. I know driving is probably quickest though it will be a bit close to rush hour, but thinking if it is the safest. Was originally thinking of taking Rutgers Shuttle from newark penn but then realized they probably won't let me on as I am not a student. Any advice appreciated!

Thanks,
Stacy

Traffic will be insane, I wouldn't drive at that time. If you're going to walk to campus from an off campus garage, it's not any safer than walking from the station anyway.

I don't remember them ever checking student ids on those campus shuttles, though I don't know that it hasn't changed.

Getting there, before 5:30 there are plenty of gainfully employed people around, so you don't have much too worry about. From Penn, you can either take the newark subway to Washington St station, walk to campus (follow raymond blvd then right on university ave), or take a cab.

Coming back your safest option is to take the shuttle.

thanks elflord! Maybe if I bring a printout with the info session information they will let me on the shuttle with a student id from another community college. but i am correct in assuming that newark penn is probably very populated at that hour so safe and washington st is on campus, isn't it?

yes, very busy around 5:30. The station exit is a block from the main part of campus.
