Train from NY

Trains from New York Penn Station to MSU (in time for a 6pm event on a weekday)

New Jersey Transit's Montclair-Boonton line stops at the Montclair Heights station which is steps away from our campus venues (please do not use Montclair State University station). Trains take roughly 50 minutes from New York Penn Station to campus on the Montclair-Boonton line. Due to delays around rush hour we suggest arriving early and strolling around campus, perhaps visiting the George Segal Art Gallery

We recommend one of three options (both direct routes):

- Take train #6251 at 2:51 PM arriving on campus at 3:39 PM

- Take train #6253 at 3:47 PM arriving on campus at 4:34 PM

- Take train #6263 at 4:50 PM arriving on campus at 5:36 PM

Both routes cost $7.25.
