hello All,

I have been working in GV for now almost 4 months. I am living in north NJ.

I have been commuting during the weekends to my place. Now I have an apartment in NJ where my family stays and I am sharing a room in a townhouse in PA.

It is getting tiring and expensive for me to do so now as winters are approaching.

I am not sure if I would have this job next year as it is a consulting position.

My company allowed me to be working remotely one day in a week and potentially 2 days if it works out.

Now my questions;
1) Are there places to rent only during the week(so that I pay less rent)
2) Are there ways to commute to great valley from North NJ (I dont want to be driving)

Please let me know if someone is doing this and I know there are others with similar problems.

Thanks for all the responses.

Regards
Pooja

Where exactly do you live in north jersey? Besides driving I can't think of many options. You could always take NJ transit to Trenton - transfer to Septa then take the regional rail thru center city philly to the malvern or exton stop. Don't know if any buses head out there. No matter what, it is going to be a hellish commute.

No thoughts of relocating closer to GV?
