Very easy. The taxis are flat rate from the port to the airport. I don't know exactly how much, maybe in the 40s or so? But since there is NO public transportation this is really your only option, less expensive and easier than a private car service.

kate, after a cruise it is a madhouse at the pier - I would not want to have to look for "my" car. In this case, since you aren't crossing any state lines, it is really easier just to line up for a taxi. And I honestly have no idea of the cost, I just remembered we went to Weehawken, not EWR, and our flat rate was in the $40s - it should be less to the airport.

Another reason NOT to use a car service...what time would you tell them to be there? What if you say 9, and you're able to get off at 8, and you'd hang around for an hour? Or what if you tell them 9, and the ship is late, there are immigration problems on board that hold up everyone, there's a problem with your luggage that has to be dealt with...and you end up paying wait time.

Are you sure there is a flat rate taxi? The port website doesn't mention taxis.

You should repost on the New Jersey fourm. Both of those companies that are portia reccomended are good. I would not go with the companies Kateoz reccomended because they are based in another state

Kate, I've always worried about doing that. How did you find "your" car in the mess? Which cruiseport was it?

But Kate going to where. The open is staying in NJ and will probably be charged the toll to leave Nj if they use a NY based service.
