Hello All,
I have a quick question. I haven't taken public transportation down to jersey yet, but I need to get from Corona, Queens to Jersey City on Woodlawn Avenue ( I just threw that in just in case it helps.) I live directly off of the #7 stop on 111th. Does anyone know what the quickest and most affordable way to get to Jersey City is? I heard it costs a lot each way. Is this true? I would most likely be working there, so I'm wondering what alternatives there are to keeping it affordable.
So, any of you pros know your way around the trains & buses as far as Jersey is concerned? Let me know!

If you take the subway to 34 Street (#7 to Times Square, N/Q/R/W one stop downtown to 34) you can pick up PATH right into Jersey City.

Take the 7 train and transfer to the F train and take it to 34th st and get the Path train to Journal square One (1.75) and you can use a pay per ride metrocard on the path trains(not the unlimited ones) and Get the 10 bus or Bergen ave bus if you are around Kennedy Blvd.
If you Are the eastern side of Woodlawn ave From Newport station take the Light Rail to Richard St and walk .

PATH rides are just below $2, but I'm not sure the exact number, so it would be almost $4 each way. Not sure if Jersey buses take MetroCard, but I'd assume they do.

Great thanks for the information y'all! I was worried it was going to be $10 a day. I have an unlimited metro card so hopefully that should help.

That will help for the NYC side of things, but Jersey Transit doesn't accept unlimiteds.

Also, be aware that PATH has been testing its brand new, high-tech rolling stock. When those trains go into service, expect to hear rumblings about a fare increase.
