Do's and Don'ts

  • Don’t stop in the middle of the sidewalk. Sidewalks in New York are like streets and they have the same kind of traffic laws.
  • Do “pull over” to take a picture or check your Google maps. Simply step to the side and let pedestrian traffic pass.
  • Don’t jump in the empty car on the Subway... ...when every other car is packed to the max with commuters. Odds are, it’s empty for a reason. Trust us.
  • Do squeeze into one of the packed cars. Even New Yorkers will try to accommodate. Quarters may be cramped but who knows what awaits you in the empty car.
  • Don’t pay for an expensive boat cruise that goes past the Statue of Liberty. There are better options.
  • Do take the Staten Island Ferry for free. It goes past most of the same sights. The round-trip ride takes about 50 minutes and you can purchase food and beverages on board.
  • Don’t be afraid to ask a New Yorker for help or directions—even when they appear disinterested, in a hurry, or can’t be bothered.
  • Do ask politely for help. The majority of locals pride themselves on their direction-giving skills. (It’s a sign they really know the city.)
  • Don’t skip a museum just because you think you can’t afford it. You might be pleasantly surprised.
  • Do visit NYCgo for a list of museums where you pay what you wish. Many times the admission price is just a suggestion.
  • Don't rent a car. Traffic is heavy and parking is an expensive challenge.
  • Do use public transportation and Yellow Cabs to get around the city.
  • Don't eat at a chain restaurant. Why would you eat at the same Olive Garden you have back home?
  • Do patronize the local restaurants. Use Yelp and UrbanSpoon and you can find some outstanding local dining options.
  • Don't wait until it's your turn to decide your order at a diner or coffee shop. The people in line behind you are in a hurry and the staff will skip past you to take the next order.
  • Do look over the menu and know what you want before you get in line.

Ground Transportation

 Whether you take AirTrain, NJ Transit, drive yourself, rent a car, or ride with one of the numerous car and van services, Newark Liberty is conveniently located on the New Jersey Turnpike (I-95). AirTrain Newark provides speedy access to New Jersey Transit trains into Newark, New York City and points south via Amtrak’s national rail network.

NJ Transit

Travel time to New York Penn Station: Approx. 30 minutes.

AirTrain arrives and departs every three minutes from 5 a.m. to midnight and approximately every 15 minutes between midnight and 5 a.m. On Sundays, the train arrives and departs approximately every 15 minutes from 10 pm to 5 am. Nighttime operation is a shuttle service which requires transfer of trains.

On weekdays, between 6 a.m. and 9 p.m., at least six NJ TRANSIT trains arrive every hour at the airport station. Between 9 p.m. and midnight, four trains arrive every hour.

Customers may purchase a ticket to ride on AirTrain from NJ Transit or Amtrak at their train stations, ticket offices or ticketing machines and the AirTrain Newark fee will be included - one ticket does it all.

Car Rental

Finding your rental is easy with AirTrain. Avis, Enterprise, Hertz, and National are located at Station P3. Alamo, Budget, and Dollar are at Station P2. 

Vehicles equipped with hand controls may also be available. Please contact the car rental companies directly regarding availability, reservations, and costs.

Tolls

Check with your rental car agency to see what their policy is for paying tolls. Some companies provide E-ZPass® transponder tags. If so, be sure you understand how to use the transponders and paying for any fees or charges. Fees vary among companies regarding unpaid tolls. Find out the specifics in advance.

If your rental car company does not provide a transponder, or you don't want to use a rental car company tag, there are two options:

  • Pay the toll in cash
  • Pay the toll with your own E-ZPass® transponder

If you have an E-ZPass® account, and decide to use your own transponder, DON'T add the rental car license plate number to your account.

Car and Van Service

Reservations for shared-ride van and private car services can be made at the Port Authority Welcome Center. It's located on the Arrivals level of each terminal. If the center's closed, there's a convenient self-service kiosk nearby. Contact authorized shared-ride or private car services there.

Safety Tip

Ignore offers of transportation from solicitors in the terminal. Soliciting of ground transportation is illegal and many illegal solicitors are unlicensed and uninsured. To obtain ground transportation information, visit the Port Authority Welcome Center, located in each terminal's Arrivals Area. A uniformed staff member will be happy to assist you. Ignore non-uniformed people offering to assist with baggage. Always look for uniformed porters or airline employees for baggage assistance.
