The #190 runs 24/7, and it's about a 15 minute walk (it's going to be a little unpleasant, having to cross over a highway). I'm not sure if the #129 is going to run 24/7 on that day, but it leaves you a little closer (you still have to cross over the highway, though). The #2 & #129 buses also connect from the Secaucus Junction station, but again, I'm not sure what the plan is for that day.

NJ Transit says they're going to operate additional service (New Jersey Transit), but I'm checking the schedules and I'm not seeing any information about holiday service.

Also is there a bus that will take me straight from Secaucus to the Port Authority near timesquare?
Boring-est event ever. It's like a ranch where people are herded to various sections and you stand there for hours just to hear loud noises by people and then when it's all over. Getting around or anywhere is the worst. If you have to go to the bathroom, good luck. Disgusting bathroom stalls and smelly people everywhere.

I did it ONCE a long time ago with temperatures in the teens. All I could think of was Napoleon's army marching back from Moscow in the dead of Winter.

It is just an incredibly stupid thing to do, especially with the lunatics out and drunk.

Agreed with everyone who has posted so far about going to Times Square on NYE. But getting from Secaucus to Times Square is not hard on the NJ Transit or a bus. The NJ Transit goes to 34th street, though, so you'd have to walk 8 blocks or so. I think it would cost you four bucks. There's a bus you can take from Port Authority also, but I've only done it once and don't remember much about it. Normally, it's not a terrible ride. However, on NYE things would probably be much different, and way more unpleasant.
