    Get here early & park in the overflow lot! Saves you time & distance. But if u did get there midday.. do yourself a favor drive up to 6 or 7th floor & don't waste time thinking there is parking lower!

    All New Jersey Transit / Amtrak stations should try to copy this place. Parking garages would increase public transit ridership significantly, and yet this is the only train station that gives a crap.

    Give yourself lots of extra time because the parking situation here is terrible! You're at the mercy of slow/confused drivers ahead of you trying to navigate through badly designed parking garages.

    No train ticket booth on the platform. Have to buy your ticket inside the tiny station with nj transit and amtrak combined that only has three windows. In other words this station sucks.

    Head to the west garage! Look for parking there first & during midday don't expect a parking space on the lower floors! Have comfortable running shoes & get ticket the night before! Save u the stairs!

    Don't crash your car in the deck. If you do be sure to have a witness if you're not at fault, as the police will give you the maximum fine they can by law, pba card or not.

    My job requires me to be punctual and I take NJ transit. I make it to work on time because I know great time management. NJ transit is a bit expensive but great for it's purpose. Public transportation

    Watch where your walking I actually got hit the other day and the guy drove off. People don't watch for pedestrians walking to their cars in the decks.

    Instead of buying a pricey business class seat, buy coach and look for the cafe car. Have a whole table to yourself and relax!

    If you are just picking or dropping off someone in off peak hours there is a parking lot with free 20 minute parking

    There is no ticket machine on the platform. You'll need to buy your ticket in the building from a booth agent or from the kiosk.

    Tell your friend your train gets in 15mins earlier than it does so you don't have to wait when they're 15mins late.

    Some of the ticket agents here are filled with ridiculous attitudes. Got to the counter to pick up my ticket, she took 15 minutes to give it to me ... Guess what? Missed my train.

    There os zipcar right outside the station in case you are travelling out of town. Avoid the civic though - doesnt work properly.

    If you ever doubt the animalistic nature of people, visit this station and deal with the passengers trying to park or get on the train.

    Heading to new york or points north? If you park on the third floor you can use the pedestrian bridge and easily walk to the platform.

    When trying to find parking just stick to the west side floor 6 or 7! Leave early so u can make it!

    Get here early to get a good parking spot. After 10am you may not find one since the deck fills up.

    Leave some time to saunter through the short tunnel underpass to the Southbound trains. It's super pretty.

    Ask NJ Transit whose 3 year old painted the al fresco murals. Then find out why the new monitors don't work. Um, free wi-fi my left cheek.

    God help you should you need assistance from the staff. They can't seem to do anything other than sit in their office.

    Men's room is absurdly small for a busy train station and poorly maintained.

    NY Penn station to Metropark: Train tracks repair. You should be in the first 3 cars of NJTransit to get off at this station.

    Don't always trust the monitors. Delayed trains sometimes arrive even without announcements. Get to the track even if it says "delayed."
