Does anybody know how crowded GSP exit 172 Park & Ride. We're thinking to move into Upper Saddle River and I need to commute to midtown each day. I found on Coach USA buses 45 and 48 that go to Port Authority from this park and ride. I really would appreciate any information about commute. I even thought about driving over tappan zee bridge to catch Hudson line train of MetroNorth... Thanks in advance anybody

The Buses are comfy , they run for the most part on time....the Tappen Zee is a mess and will cost you more in the long run along with added stress.

I believe that you should be able to park there throughout the day, although how far from the bus stop might depend on timing. The earlier you are the better you will be (goes without saying). My father used to commute regularly from the rest stop to the PA and it always seemed to work fine for him. I would advise against going over the Tap, its a mess in the mornings. You can take the train from Ramsey, Allendale, Montvale, (Almost any town in the area except USR) (although not direct) to Penn which in the long run might even be shorter depending where your office is. And there is a morning express that leaves from Ramsey 17 which cuts the commute down by atleast 15 minutes. Hope this helps

Thank you all. Very helpful!! If to go with train then how is in Ramsey and Ramsey 17 with parking? I saw on njtransit.com that Allendale train station has parking for "non-residents". The same site says that Ramsey does not have parking for non-residents. Is it so? I'm ready to pay for parking more and be sure to have the spot...

Ramsey Route 17 is the main park and ride of the Main line, the other stations make it hard for non residents to park there on a daily basis.... Keep in mind that you need to transfer to get to New York at Secaucus JCT unlike a bus which goes directly into NYC.

Huge parking garage at ramsey 17 that you should have no problem parking at, Ramsey (town) on the other hand has very minimal parking. Ramsey 17 has express trains in the AM and PM which reduces travel time (express is about 45 minutes from Ramsey 17 to NY penn). While I believe all trains from Ramsey(town) and Allendale are local the whole way. Yes you do need to transfer but if you are to take the train this is much better IMO than going to tarrytown or some other Metro north station across the river. And depending on when you want to arrive in the city the train may be faster than the Bus (dont have to deal with lincoln tunnel and bus lane traffic). And Your Welcome I could help
