Question Best route during rush hour from Springfield to Jersey City

Hi,

In few months I will need to drive to work everyday from Springfield,NJ to Jersey City,NJ.Could anybody please comment on the traffic on the route during rush hours ( 08:00 - 09:00 AM in the morning and 05:30-06:00 PM in the evening)

What will be the best option for driving, will it be I-78 or US-1/9 or is there any other better route.

Really appreciate if anybody could help please.Unfortunately taking the public transport is not an option for me :-(

Thanks

I've never taken I-78 at that time, but I can't imagine it's WORSE than 1-9.

The problem with continuing down the NJ Tpke section of I-78 is few ways to exit any jams. I think you might be best off going down Truck 1/9 as there are lots of ways to get around jams. Sometimes the ole "doublin doozy" route 22 is better than I-78 from Springfield too.

Thanks a lot for your answers.

I am planning to try out different routes(based on your recommendations) starting May.

Will post my results. Hopefully will be able to switch to public transit within few months :-(

Thanks

You might be able to catch a PATH train down that way from somewhere closeby, need to park wheels somewhere. Possibly park in Newark or Harrison, Summit?

There is a jitney run by the town of Springfield that takes you to the train station in Millburn, where you can catch the train to Hoboken and then catch either the path or light rail (which ever takes you closer to your work place) in Jersey City. (although there is a fee for the jitney, the parking is free.)

For more info see here: Jitney Schedule - Services - Springfield Township

Morris & Essex Line....I didn't even know there was a train from Millburn to Hoboken...or that Hoboken had any trains other than PATH ones.

Where does the Morris & Essex Line stop in Hoboken?
