Hi all, thank you for your help with my last question. I need to go to Bristol, PA (you can find it on Google map) with train from Aberdeen/Matawan, NJ as you see in NJ transit:

New Jersey Transit

There is no station for Bristol, is there any other station close to Bristol, PA ?
Thanks

It would involve at least 3 trains. a Local train that stops in Rahway to get the Trenton train and then Septa to Bristol. how long depends on the wait between connection

Thanks for the answer, but even if I go to Rahway or Trenton I still can't find any connection from there to Septa or Bristol Check NJ transit website:New Jersey Transit
These two cities don't exist there!

dude, there is a train station in bristol, pa. macpat was correct. you're just not looking at the right train schedules. and septa is not a city, it's a transportation system that runs through the metro philly area and is completely separate from nj transit.

specifically, bristol's station is along septa's R7 line. to get there from aberdeen-matawan, you need to take two nj transit trains to trenton, then switch to the septa train to get to bristol:

1) take the nyc-bound nj transit north jersey coast line train from aberdeen-matawan to rahway.

2) at rahway, look for signs for the trenton-bound nj transit northeast corridor line train. you do not need to exit the station to catch this other train.

take the northeast corridor line all the way down to trenton, which is the final stop.

3) at trenton, look for signs for the septa R7 train. as was the case at rahway, you do not need to exit the trenton station to switch from nj transit to septa. and as always, make sure you buy your ticket before boarding the train.

here is the schedule for septa's R7 line:
SEPTA

and here is some info on the R7 line and the bristol station specifically:
