Default bus from Cliffside Park, NJ to Port Authority, NY

We bought a house in Cliffside Park near the Supermarket on Edgewater Rd & Anderson Ave...what is the best/fasted/nearest buses available in the area to commute to Manhattans Port Authority?
Also, does anyone know the cost of a monthly pass?
Any advice would be great!

Check NJ Transit homepage, just yahoo it

Or i think is the NJ Transit bus 166, it is local, and will go to fairview, Weehawken, West NY, and then into the lincoln, it takes the Scenic Route through the cliff so you can see the Manhattan Skyline, I forget the name

I know there is a stop for bus 159 and 154 nearby, but I heard some of the local buses take a long time.
I'm hoping someone in that area can advise on the most direct/fastest route. I've looked on NJTransit but can't figure which is the fastest bus though.
