Go to Google and enter Phildelphia Int. Airport.....click on directions, click on the train/bus icon and enter Toms River. You will then get detailed directions.

Susie - unless there's a section I don't know about, that function doesn't exist on PHL.org..

I did it via Google Transit and came up with (estimated travel time over 4 hours):

Airport Terminal A

Airport Line

Train 4844 towards Center City Philadelphia

4:13pm - 4:29pm (16 mins, 2 stops)

University City

Continues as

Fox Chase Line

(stay on board)

Train 4844 towards Fox Chase

4:29pm - 4:33pm (4 mins, 1 stop)

30th Street Station

Walk to 30th St. PHL.

About 1 min (14 mins to make transfer)

30th St. PHL. Stop ID: 95001

Atlantic City Rail Line

Train towards Atlantic City

4:47pm - 6:14pm (1 hour 27 mins, 6 stops)

Absecon Stop ID: 95002

Walk to Shore Rd at Us-30

About 4 mins (49 mins to make transfer)

Shore Rd at Us-30 Stop ID: 30454

559

Bus towards 559 Lakewood

7:02pm - 8:42pm (1 hour 40 mins, 72 stops)

Irons St 125' N of Water St. Stop ID: 26604

Walk to Toms River, NJ

About 4 mins (0.2 mi)

Personally, time and effort, you are better served finding a shuttle service.

There are also some options that involve Greyhound to Toms River, but that's not technically public transit.

Another option would be the 317 from Philly to lakewood. Take the airport line to market east, exit at filbert st and then take the 317 from philly to lakewood. Toms River is huge. Depending where you are going you might need anpther bus from lakewood. Here are a few links
