Getting Around

Getting Into South Orange Village

  • You can totally walk! Exit the Main Gate onto South Orange Avenue and make a left. Walk west past Montrose Park and you will see South Orange village.
  • Want an option other than walking? SHUFLY makes trips downtown. Get their schedule & stops here: SHUFLY Schedule
  • Missed the last SHUFLY or traveled off the route? SafeRide runs after SHUFLY is done, The Department of Public Safety provides one way service from campus to destinations within a half-mile radius of campus. Reservation are required, and downloading the TapRide mobile app is the smart way to go!

Getting Into New York City

  • Your easiest route to New York City is walking or taking SHUFLY to the South Orange Train Station. Catch a quick 35-minute train ride via the Morris & Essex line to New York City’s Penn Station (34th Street). You can buy a ticket at the automated ticket machine using cash or your debit/credit card. Avoid buying a ticket ON the train; it cost more!
  • The 107 bus line runs between Sloan Street in South Orange and New York City’s Port Authority Bus Terminal (42nd Street). Port Authority is close to NYC’s Theater District / Broadway.
  • The 92 Orange Crosstown bus line runs between the South Orange Train Station and Newark’s Branch Brook Park City Subway Station. From there you could walk to Newark Penn Station and catch the PATH train into NYC. The PATH train runs 24 hours a day.

  • MetLife Stadium: Home to the Jets, the Giants, concerts & so much more! Most of NJ Transit’s rail system connects at the Frank R. Lautenberg train station in Secaucus, N.J., which allows fans from the region to reach MetLife Stadium. The Meadowlands Rail Service delivers guests directly to the front door of MetLife Stadium. Trains leave from Secaucus Junction and the Hoboken Terminal, both located on the NJ Transit Line. NJ Transit does not service every Meadowlands event so always check here.
