I have been researching a move to New Jersey for some time now, and have to find a city with affordable rent that I can commute from reasonably.

How difficult would the commute to NYC be from Marlton? And how much money would I be spending on said commute.


Thanks for the input.

Marlton would be too far. Look near Hamilton Station. You can take the train.

People do the commute from the Marlton area -- Greyhound goes from Mount Laurel to NYC. But it is a long ride (~2 hours, if I remember correctly).

I had a friend who commutued between NYC and Marlton - the total time each way was 2.5 hours on Greyhound. Marlton is only 30 minutes outside of Philly at most, so it is really a Philly town. I am sure there is affordable rentals in Morris county - the commute would be a lot easier from there.

I live the town next to Marlton, you CAN commute to NYC but you won't WANT to. It's too far. For a weekend day trip when you're relaxed it's fine, but 5 days a week with time constraints would probably drive a person mad.

I agree with the two suggestions so far: Move to Mercer County and take the Hamiliton train, I have gotten there in like an hour on the express or move to North West Jersey.
