Juggling options: how do I get to New Brunswick, NJ for a conference that runs from 1 PM on Sunday, April 27 through 2 PM on Friday, May 2nd? Based on flight availabilities and transit timing, is JFK or EWR a better option? Details on flight times inside.
I can either fly into JFK and take ... something ... to get to New Brunswick and then do the reverse, or fly into Newark Liberty Int'l (EWR) where I can get a ride from
the conference, but not to
there from the airport on Sunday.
I'm leaning on flying in and out of JFK because I can take a red-eye and get to JFK by 6 AM, giving me 7 hours to get to New Brunswick. On the way out, I'm looking at a 7:55 PM flight out of JFK, but I might be squeezing it, as that gives me about 5 hours to get to the airport. Is that doable, and if so, what are my options? I came across this Yahoo Answers question to the same general question of routes
, but my timing is pretty specific. Are those routes still running?
Otherwise, can I get anything from EWR to New Brunswick besides a taxi? That looks like the only option according to Newark Airport's website
. And even if I could easily/inexpensively travel from EWR to New Brunswick, how best for me to fill a day, as I'd get in to EWR near 2 PM on Saturday, a day early. There are no red-eye flights to EWR, so I'm either late to the conference by a few hours, or a day early.
Last bit - I'm flying from out of the area, so I really have no idea what the options are. I'm happy to figure things out, but I figure the hivemind would have applicable personal experiences at these travel times, instead of just checking time tables. Cheers!
