Three of us want to go to NYC for a day trip on a Saturday. Going to take a bus tour. Need to know cheap way to get to Times Square from Secausus, New Jersey.
The one-way bus fare is $3.20 and you can board Bus No 129 toward NEW YORK VIA UNION CITY & SECAUCUS PLZ from SECAUCUS JUNCTION. The bus will bring you straight to Port Authority Bus Terminal, which is only an avenue away from Times Square.
The one-way train fare is $4.00 and you can take any train going to Penn Station. The train will bring you to 34th Street, which a few blocks away from the heart of Times Square. I think the train is more comfortable.
Mentioned in this answer:
I don't know the name of the company but there are mini busses that leave from the side of Port Authority Bus Terminal at 42nd street & 8th avenue for all parts of NJ for dirt cheap. They are designed for commuters that work across the river. Arrive at Port of authority Bus Terminal at 42 Street and 8th Avenue and ask the information booth where you catch the min vans to and from Secaucus. There is also the New Jersey Transit Trains and bus options but can be a little pricy. Path Trains depart from 34th Street and 6th Avenue and you can get more info on njtransit.com
