Hi All,

Appreciate if someone can respond to the below.
I have recently got a job in Hoboken( near River Street).I live in Edison near the Plainfield train station(not walkable--10 min drive)

Would like to know different kind of ways to commute and compare the commute time from door-to-door and cost of that commute options.

Option1:Since i dont have parking permit in Edison Station parking, i need to goto Metropark(atleast 15 -20 min drive in the mornings) to take the train.then path etc.
option 2:Go by car and park in Hoboken.This option looks like is expensive as car parking is hoboken + gas+ wear/tear/ +tolls etc

My aim is to : reduce the commute time and spend resonable money on monthly commute.

Please let me your experiences/views/ideas

Appreciate in advance
s

just as an FYI, aside from the cost of parking in Hoboken, the hassle of getting in and out of Hoboken during rush hour periods extends the commute time so much. because of only a few ways in and out, driving there is fairly unreasonable.

i think you could either take the train to newark/penn station and switch to the Path, or possibly take the train directly to Hoboken terminal. If you can't go direct, you can definitely switch at Secaucus Junction to get a train into Hoboken Terminal.

The Raritan Valley line does offer a few trains to Hoboken daily. No switching required. If you were to go to the Northeast Corridor you would have to take that to Secaucus JCT and switch to Hoboken
