Newark airport to Manhattan: Is it nuts to take the bus?

Jump to last reply

I have read a lot of opinions on the internet regarding transportation from EWR to Manhattan, and I am seriously considering taking the Newark Airport Express Bus. From what I have read, you just walk outside the terminal and hop on one of their buses which departs every 15 minutes, and takes about a half hour to get to Manhattan. If we disembark at the Port Authority location, we will be less than 1/2 mile from our hotel. I would walk to the hotel from there because I don't know if any cab would be pleased to drive us such a short distance.

The one thing which makes me unsure if this is the best way is the fact that we are scheduled to arrive Newark airport at 9:40 pm. It's only 16 bucks each and we wouldn't have to pay any tolls, plus it drops us off so close to our destination. We will each have carry on sized rolling luggage. I'd appreciate your opinion if you think it's a fine idea, or if we should pay closer to 70 bucks (or more) for a cab ride which would drop us off at the door of our hotel, or even a shuttle service. Thanks!
