Hi guys, does anyone know how I can go to 1800 Cedar Bridge Ave, Lakewood, New Jersey 08701 (from Aberdeen/Matawan or any major cities close-by). I'm searching for the best possible option also there might be a bus from NYC; 42nd St - Port Authority Bus Term. Station?!

There is no bus/train from Matawan to Lakewood, but I'm sure there are express buses from NYC to Lakewood.

This commute will be a nightmare. The best way of doing this would to take the train to Point P beach and take the Ocean ride Brick Link bus from the station

I would take the train to Bradley Beach and catch the NJTransit 317 bus. When you get off the train in Bradley you just walk across the park to Main St. and you should see a bus stop sign on the corner. You can also catch this bus near the Point Pleasant Station but IMO, it's easier at Bradley Beach and, if you have a layover there are cafes and such nearby.

Anyway, The 317 will take you down Route 88 to the bus terminal in Lakewood. If you get off the bus at Route 88 and New Hampshire Ave. it's about a 20 minute walk to your address.

I hope the weather is nicer when you're making that trip.

Edit: also, isn't there an Academy bus that runs down 79 to Freehold? From Freehold you can get the bus to Lakewood (the 139?) although you'll wind up at the Lakewood bus terminal and be slightly further from your destination.

The train is the only real way to get down there. The only bus from Matawan during rush hour goes to NYC and down to Freehold from NYC during the evening rush other times of day there is no bus service from Matawan itself.
There is an Academy bus from route 36(Airport Plaza)that can get you to NYC and Long Branch.
On Point Pleasant Beach, If you have to wait for the bus there are places to eat at and some stores in the downtown area to go into and the Ocean Ride bus will take you to your location with no more than a five minute walk and the brick link runs every two hours

Thank you for the reply guys, I'm considering both options (train to Bradley Beach and Point Pleasant Beach). In case I take the bus from Point Pleasant Beach, which stop should I get off? Cedar Bridge Avenue & Rt 70 or Cedar Bridge Avenue (FirstEnergy Park)? It should be the last one.

My best bet would be go to PP Beach and get the bus there. I never used the Brick Link bus myself but ask the bus driver on where you should off on Cedar Bridge Road
