It's an old station and has its charms. I love how it is linked to the PATH line and to local buses and it is right in the middle of downtown. You can buy some food here.

Perfect for transportation but terrible for stuff like dirty pee and trash filled elevators. From the time you walk in the door there are homeless people sleeping in the doorway and blocking steps. I’m a YouTube blogger who was shooting videos from my camera and a man threatened me to stop filming or else. This was one of many vagrants and panhandlers throughout the building. The stench on the elevators was unbearable and had trash on them. New people need to step in and take over this place. Perfect for transportation, horrible for the vagrant problems.

I use to go to Penn Station every day at one time when I worked in Newark. I went yesterday and the station has taken a 360. There are not any people hanging out in station. The station looks very clean. I hope they keep it this way.

Newark Penn is pretty good. Not the same as the one in Manhattan. The staff were pretty helpful and it was a pretty clean site. It was easy to get around.

We caught the Path train into the world trade centre. It is a very efficient and quick service. But if you travel at peak times you will have to stand the whole way. Try to exit the station right into the main Penn concourse otherwise you will end up across the busy road.

Used this station when we stayed in the doubletree hotel. Lots of platforms and tracks so do your homework before you get here. Senior is $2.45 single or $4.90 return . Adult $5.25 single or $10.50 return.

First of all, there are two Penn Stations and most of us want to get to the one in New York; this one is in New Jersey state.

If you are driving to New York, this is a good station to park your car and take the train to NY. There are many many exits and entrances so you might get lost figuring out where your car is.

This is also a daily commute for most so traffic is really bad during office hours. Expect half an hour to get out of the parking lot in the evening.

Newark Penn Station is a Train Station where you can connect from the PATH, NJ Transit, Newark City Subway, Amtrak, NJ Transit Local buses, Greyhound or Bolt Buses.

It's not a great place to catch Mass Transit, however it is a major transit junction. Newark Penn Station is located in Downtown Newark, NJ. There are a few places to eat inside of the station. There are many places you can get to from Newark Penn Station. You can get to New York City using the PATH Train upstairs, NJ Transit or Amtrak. There are also options using Bolt and Greyhound.

You can also go further south to Philadelphia using NJ Transit; connecting to Septa or more directly using Amtrak. Amtrak can take you much further including Washington DC and beyond. All within Newark Penn Station.

My personal advice is to be aware of your soundings in the area of the station.
