Our daughter just got her first job near Parsippany, nj. but has a place to live in Manhattan and wants to commute. She wants to park her car in a secure lot either in Newark-Penn station lots . Is it doable to take the train from NYPenn station to NewarkPenn then drive vehicle easily get on freeway/highway to Parsippany? How much traffic is there on surface streets from train station to I280 Hwy.
Is there a better location and less expensive to securely park vehicle every night? WE are not from the area.

completely unnessesary Lakelandbus goes DIRECTLY to parsippany from NYC and within walking distance of most business parks. Or for direct service try train to east orange then NJT 79 express. The drive is a complete waste it's not nessesary I know I used to commute to parsippany from NYC. LL bus does it directly.

OHH FYI I-280 = HELL

I would suggest checking the Harrison PATH station, they have parking lots and garages surrounding it and I-280 is a block or 2 away. Guessing the drive up 2's 8's and zeroes is anywhere from 20 to 40 minutes depending on traffic.

Parking at the Harrison LAZ garage is $175/month. Probably it's cheaper in the surrounding lots (e.g. Day Care on Essex), though it's a longer walk and they aren't garages. It should be a better drive than from Newark Penn.

I'd be careful regarding doing the reverse commute via Lakeland bus. Their schedule is set specifically for the commute for those living NJ and working in the city. The bus depot is in Dover, so getting early morning transportation from the city to Parsippany may be difficult. Best check it out before hand.

In addition to the question about the feasibility of the commute, be prepared for a lot of headaches with regard to vehicle registration and insurance in this scenario.

travelling on 280 West shouldnt be too bad in the morning. i used to travel from parsippany area to Newark via 280 East in the morning, that was bad. but west bound should be fairly breezy. sort of a reverse commute.

Vehicle would be registered in NY and insured with a policy acceptable to both states (because it's principly garaged in NJ). Probably not too hard.
