Easiest way to travel from NYC to Brick Township, 08723

Hi

Hoping to attend a family wedding next year in Brick Township, NJ. We will be flying into NYC and sightseeing there for a few days. Is there an easy way to get to Brick by public transport?

Thanks in advance for any replies.

I don't recommend taking a train - if you can get a bus from NJ Transit that would probably be most direct. Be aware of the schedule though, if there are a lot of stops between NYC and Brick, it could take a while!

You can get a train to Pt. Pleasant which is the nearest station to Brick or a bus...check out njtransit.com..., but once there will you have someone to drive you around? If not, then you should consider renting a car. The drive from NYC to Brick is easy....just south on the Garden State Parkway.

You can get a New Jersey Transit North Jersey Coast Line train from Penn Station in New York City.

The last stop on the line is Bay Head, which is within a mile of Brick. (Actually, Brick is pretty big and spread out, and I don't know exactly where in Brick you are going, so it might be more than a mile.) If other wedding guests are not available to pick you up at Bay Head station you can probably find a local taxi service.

But ....... What are you going to do for local transportation while staying in Brick? This is a very automobile-centric, far-out suburb.

As the others have said, you can certainly take the train all the way down to Point Pleasant or Bay Head; however I suggested you find a bus which would likely be more direct. A local train from NYC will stop about 20 times, and you may have to change in Long Branch, which presents yet another delay. Check the rates and schedules for both on NJ Transit's website, and decide which is most suitable to you. There's a bus stop just off Exit 91; depending where in Brick you are going that may be your best option. Assuming your relatives will pick you up, it's probably closer than Point or Bay Head train stations.
