There is no direct connection to Grand Central from EWR. From Penn you can take the subway or a taxi if you need to get to Grand Central.
Are you making a train connection for an onward journey?
I visited NYC for my first time last Friday, here's what we did:
The hallway to air tran is clearly marked when you de-plane. However, we had to go down the escalator to get luggage, then back up to follow the signs to the air tran. There was some confusion on which side of the platform to stand on once we got to the Liberty station to catch the train into NYC, but we just asked someone that looked like they knew what they were doing, and they were happy to help.
We just did this last week and found it to be really easy. To be honest next time we visit New York I'd be favouring ewr to jfk. Anyway, clearly signposted from the arrivals hall to the monorail, then train straight into Penn.
I may well be mistaken, but as far as I know there are not too many destinations that can be reached by both. For places in Long Island or New Jersey, you'd need Penn; for Westchester County , Connecticut, or Upstate GCT is the way.
I suppose Amtrak from Penn Station has some overlap with the Metro-North out of Grand Central, but most people would have a preference for one or the other since there is such a difference is pricing and travel time.Edited: 8:15 pm, July 13, 2016
Could anyone tell me if i would need to pay an additional $2 to travel to another subway station as the NJ Transit train stops at Penn?
@ #6, Yes you would- no free transfer between commuter trains and the subway
Thank you . Thought that was the case.
