7.15am flight to Calgary

Hello

We are family of 2 adults 2 children. We have a flight to catch at 7.15am via Newark Airport.

We will be staying at Wyndham New Yorker and as it is very close to Penn station we thought it was a good way to use train to the airport but found out that NJtransit is closed from 2 to 5am. Is that correct?

Could anyone tell me other option to get to the airport please. Or do you think taxi is the best way? TIA

Yikes, totally useless post as I was thinking JFK ... sorry

are your children under 44 inches? If so, public transport will be free for them:

Dial 7 served me well to Newark.

Dial7 seems to be the popular and best way to get us to EWR.

Thanks for all your response, really appreciate it.

Have a good trip. You are heading from Newark to one of my favourite regions, assuming you are getting out of Calgary to see the good stuff. :)

It is NJ Transit - not Amtrak.

www.njtransit.com

The 5:14AM train will have you in the terminal by 6:00AM. The train is very reliable.
