Take the Air Train to the Rail Link Station. It is one station past P4 and costs nothing to use. The shuttles arrive above the station and the train tracks are below as seen in the picture below. On the right side of the picture you can see an AirTrain arriving. Once arriving with the Air Train, you will need to buy your tickets at the New Jersey Transit ticket machine. Then you will go downstairs and outdoors to the track on the right. If in doubt which track you will be using, ask one of the employees. From the Rail Link Station, you will get on a New Jersey Transit train which will take you to New York City, Penn Station. Penn Station is located close to Madison Square Garden, to Macy’s Store and also to the Empire State Building. The picture below shows how the Rail Link station looks on the outside. The trains run about 2-4 times an hour.

After a fun day in the city you will be needing to head back to Jersey to your hotel. To go back to Newark Liberty International Airport, you will need to buy tickets at either the New Jersey Transit ticket counter at the Penn Station or at one of the machines. 10 minutes before the train departures to New Jersey, the track number will be displayed on one of the many screens at the station. Often the train is the one heading for Trenton, but all trains with the abbreviation “EWR” next to the destination, head for the airport. The trains run about 3 or 4 times an hour and from experience, usually in the first half. Going back, the conductors check the tickets but do not collect them. You will need them to exit the Rail Link Station to the Air Train Station. Then you will get on the Air Train and proceed to P4 where you will catch your shuttle bus to your hotel.
