EWR to Times Square

I'm flying into Newark and staying at the Crowne Plaza in Times Square. I've read about the Airtrain. Is this the best way to get from A to B??

All kinds of rail and road issues on this route at present. We're watching the following thread for feedback on people's travel experiences.


We're travelling on Friday and I'll try to post our experience once we've arrived.

If you're not coming in during rush hour. It may be better to take the Newark Airport Express bus which goes to Port Authority Bus Terminal at 42nd ST & 8th Ave. From there you could simply walk (or take a taxi) to your hotel.

The AirTrain is currently down until at least July for construction. If you want to take the train you'd need to take the shittle bus that is replacing the AirTrain. This will take you to Newark Penn Station from there you can take a NJ Transit to Penn Station in Manhattan. Since you're going to a Times Square hotel and the Airtrain isn't working (and you'll have to take the replacement shuttle bus) I'd just take the Newark Airport Express bus.
