I have to travel from Queens Village, NY to Somerville, NJ and have to take the Q36 to 179th and Hillside, take the F train to the E train. Now my problem is Penn Station vs Suburban bus to Somerville, NJ. Does anyone have a good advice to this travel plan? Would it be easier to take the bus to NJ or take the train from NY Penn Station. I need to save time and money here. Please help me choose whats best.

Thanks

Queens Village

I think you'd most likely save more time and money by taking the PATH. You have to remember that traffic to and from NJ is a lot of the times BACKED UP.. and if you're trying to save time, sometimes it's better to just give in and take the train if it's possible.

Why not take the Q36(assuming you're east of the QV station) to the Queens Village LIRR to Penn Station, from there hoping on the NJ Transit North Jersey Coast or the Northeast Corridor line to Newark Penn Station and transferring to the Raritan Valley Line to Somerville? It's going to cost more, but you'll definitely get there faster.

Where would you board the Surburban bus to NJ?
I didn't know you could get a bus to NJ from Queens Village.


It'd likely be "easier" to bus it - less hustle and bustle.

Now what would be quicker is another story.

Default Suburban Transit

Well I have taken the Suburban to Somerville, NJ from the Port Authority and do find it easy to travel that way. See I can take the Q36 bus to 179th and Hillside, take the F train to the E train. My thing is the E train stopping right at the Port Authority terminal. I find it more convenient to take the bus that goes directly to Somerville, NJ. It is much quicker for me if I leave around rush hour. Oh and no I do wish there was a bus in Queens Village to New Jersey..

Yea I have tried taking the PATH but its not giving me the time window that I need. The Suburban leaves me in front of the location where I am going to. Thanks

Take the (M) or (R) to Jackson Heights, transfer to the (E) to the Port Authority Bus Terminal, and then take an NJT bus to Hackensack. The exact bus depends on where in Hackensack you're going.

See a bus map of northern NJ here. Zoom into Hackensack. At a glance, it looks like the #165 & #168 would work for you (I'm too lazy to look for the other Hackensack-Port Authority routes, but there are probably a couple more)

You could take the (E) one more stop to Penn Station, and then take a train to Secaucus for the Pascack Valley Line, but the train runs a lot less frequently than the bus.

Take the Q52/53 (express) or 11 to Queens Center for the subway if you're not near there already.
