Getting from EWR to Point Pleasant

Getting from EWR to Point Pleasant

I need to know if there is a train that goes from Newark airport to Point Pleasant NJ.

I really can fly into any of the area airports, but I think EWR would be the easiest.

I looked at the schedules for trains, but could not make heads or tails out of them since I am not familiar with the area.

Any Advice or help would be appreciated.

Thank you

Easy, take the North Jersey Coast Line. You will need a 'local' train that stops at the Newark Airport station. Depending on where you want to end up, there are two stops that will serve you, one in Pt Pleasant Beach and then Bay Head, which is the end of the line. You can see the route map here: njtransit.com/pdf/rail/Rail_System_Map.pdf

You can figure out the schedule by entering your starting and destination points. The trains are usually pretty punctual, and you will need to allow at least 30 mins, probably more, to get from the plane to the train station. There may also be a train-change required in Long Branch, but it will be very easy. You can bring your luggage onto the train with no issues.

Thanks so much for the info, but I am still confused. Is there a shuttle or something that I take from the airport to get to the train? The link you sent did not have a destination point. I am trying to coordinate plane and train.

Lastly is it safe for a woman traveling alone.

Much appreciated your answer.

You get the AirTrain at the airport to New Jersey Transit's Newark Airport Station. There you get the North Jersey Coast LIne again on New Jersey Transit. When you look at the NJTransit.com click on Train Schedule. Click on Newark Airport for Origin and Pt. Pleasant for destination.

It is perfectly safe.

I hope I do not get lost, now just need to coordinate the air schedule with the train schedule.
