[nycbug-talk] Getting to the meeting from out of State

I concur - NJ transit runs pretty much all night too, contrary to popular belief - though if you need crash space - you can call me and crash up here in the Bronx. (I generally don't come to meetings because of familial obligations - though let me know if you do come in, I'll try and find a babysitter)

Hi Dan,

I take NJ transit many times a week.  It is much cheaper than Amtrak and
more frequent, the Trenton line runs on the same rails as the Amtrak NE
Corridor for much of the trip:

I guess)

I would recommend taking an express NJ Transit from Trenton, Driving on
the NJ Turnpike is exhausting on a good day and often a total
nightmare.  Plus if you are coming in the evenings you will be going
against the commute like me so you always get a good seat...

Good Luck,
