Does anyone know of an easy, inexpensive way to get from Newark airport to Hoboken w/o a car?

1. Take the Airtrain from the Terminals to the Airport Station
2. Take the Northeast Corridor line to Secaucus JCT
3. Take any inbound train to Hoboken Terminal

^ That is the easiet way , with less transfers and better when its colder out...

The cheapest way is to take the #62 bus to Newark Penn Station, and then take the PATH to Grove Street, where you can transfer to another train to Hoboken. That costs $1.50 for the bus and $2 for the PATH.

Alternatively, you can take the AirTrain to the Newark Airport Rail station, then take the train to Secaucus, and then transfer to reach Hoboken (Unless you somehow manage to catch a direct North Jersey Coast Line train to Hoboken). I don't really think this'll be worth the extra cost, though.

I'm willing to pay $10 - $15 if it's easier. In fact, does anyone have an idea of what a taxi would cost ewr to Hoboken?

$35 - $40... but that's a bit of a guess based on older rates. I'd take the train to Secaucus and over to Hoboken.

Go28 stops at Broad Street station which has rail lines going into Hoboken: http://www.njtransit.com/pdf/bus/T0028.pdf
Be sure the bus sign says "via Broad Street station" on it since there are two routes it takes. As for Broad Street weekends is tough as trains run every 2 hours to Hoboken while it's more frequent during the week. Easiest, more costly way would be NJT NYC bound train to Secaucus(make sure it stops at Secaucus) and switch for the Hoboken train. $12.25 one way.

On weekends and late nights. Weekdays you gotta change at Exchange Place.

There is one direct train to Hoboken from the Airport station in 3:20 in the afternoon on weekdays but in the morning you can get any train to NWK penn station and board a Hoboken bound train up to 8:50 am.and on weekends there is no direct service between Penn station and Hoboken. other times of day it would be best to take it to Sec and then any HOB train(costly option)

Other alt ways is to take 62 bus to Penn station and then take path trains to Exchange place and get the Hoboken bound train(Cheaper option as long as don't have much luggage)
take the GO 28 bus to Broad st station and take any Hoboken bound train from there (make sure bus serves Broad st station as other branch will not serve it)

The Newark PATH doesn't serve Hoboken. He'd have to change again at Journal Square or Grove Street.

So no, it's not as "simple" as you're making it out to be because there's another transfer involved. Sure, it's a same-platform transfer, but it's a transfer nontheless (not to mention the original bus-train transfer)
