    For 6 people the train doesnt make sense. Newark cabs are fine, but you need a van cab. I would book Allstate, Carmel or Dial 7 online. Or Uber.

    Do NOT take SuperShuttle - you could wait an hour for them to fill the other seats in the van at the airport, which they will never tell you - and then you get to drop off people at their hotels. Definitely dont take it back to the airport unless you want to get there 4 hours early - or risk missing your flight.

    There is a train from Newark Liberty International Airport to Penn Station in Manhatten. Takes about 1/2 hour. $12.50 for adult one way $8.75 for a child There is a train at 11:55pm and 12:45 am

    6 people may be pricey. There is always Taxi and Uber cars. Probably a set fare but not sure what that would be no need to buy tx in advance in either case.

    Call a car service like Carmel. Most have SUV's or Vans available and when you amortize the price across 6 people it's far more efficient than using SuperShuttle (which is awful and and a bad value too, even for one person) and a heck of a lot more comfortable than a train.

      This is the best answer, depending on the number of kids and bags in your group. If you were flying solo, I would definitely say to take the train, but once you start adding in the kids ticket, it will end up more than the cab fare in total. But make sure you follow Scott's suggestion here to use a car service, as many of the taxis which line up at the airport can't accommodate groups larger than 4, so you will definitely need a van or SUV for pickup. · (0 likelikes)

    I would 100% get an Uber black on arrival. Make sure it's an SUV. You won't wait long there are ALWAYS multiple Uber drivers in airports. Calling a cab ahead of time can't account for possible delays.

    Call and schedule cab ahead of time (like a day prior). This Asian-owned taxi company offers reasonable fixed price service from Manhattan<--> Newark (New Jersey). Be sure to ask for a 7-sitter taxi, which can fit 6 people comfortably (no extra charge for luggage or for >5 people)

    Agree with calling a black car service that has a flat fare or taking a taxi. With 6 it won't be such a great cost difference, and far less a hassle at that time of night. Best of luck and enjoy New York!

    If your staying in a NY hotel, check for shuttles buses. Taxis can be expensive. Keep in mind that you must cross the Lincoln or Holland tunnel to enter Manhattan, cost for non ez pass customers is $14.00
