Surrounding towns in NJ:
General Travel / Distance Information:  The Basking Ridge, Bernardsville, Bedminster, Far Hills towns are between 38 miles
(Basking Ridge) and about 55 miles from Midtown Manhattan, depending upon the exact coordinates.  Newark Airport is approximately 25
miles away.  It's about an hour and fifteen minutes to the New Jersey shore, one hour to ski resorts, and about 40 minutes or less to the
Pennsylvania border.  CT border is approximately 75 miles away

Map:  Map of surrounding counties from Basking Ridge vantage point.  Uses Googlempaps.  You can blast a map to and from anywhere with
this link!   

Trains:  Links to NJ Transit including schedules, fares, alerts, and more.  There are several rush hour trains on the Peapack-Gladstone
line that go directly into Manhattan each business day.  At other times, a change in Summit is necessary.  Morris County has a fuller schedule
into Manhattan.  Also includes links to NJ Transit buses.  Both the Basking Ridge and Lyons stations are actually in Basking Ridge.  The others
are intuitively named.  Convent Stations is part of Morristown.  
NJ Transit Map:  Diagram of all lines and stations.   

Buses:  Links to Lakeland Bus Company which follows the Route 78 corridor into Manhattan, as well as Routes 46 and 80.  Super express
buses can make it into Port Authority in less than an hour from Lyons in Basking Ridge.  For those not familiar with the area, Lyons is also in
the town of Basking Ridge.  Just when the traffic begins to build, the bus is able to take its own lane, and go right into Port Authority.   

Driving:  LInks to live traffice cams.   287, 78, and 80 are all in close proximity to the area.  78 is the major route into NYC, whether
midtown or downtown, as well as Newark Airport.  

Did you know that highway 287 and the Garden State Parkway numbers their exits by the mile posts?  For example, the distance between
Exit 30 and Exit 22 is eight miles.  You can determine how far your trip on 287 or the Garden State Parkway is by subtracting the larger of your
starting point and ending point from the other.
Off-peak, the trip to NYC Is under an hour.  Call me about a well-kept secret for parking in NYC right on top of the Port Authority building, where
you'll exit the lot right into the tunnel!  This can save 40 minutes or more from NYC during the peak drive home.  
During rush hour, 78 is usually pretty open, but as you approach the tunnels, bring a book, unless on the bus.

Many commuters also drive to Summit or Maplewood once they determine where to park, and then take a train into NYC, as the road between
is pretty open, and there are more direct trains from those stations.

Flying:  Newark Liberty Airport is the closest, although LaGuardia and JFK also serve NJ.  It is a straight run on highway 78 right to the
airport, about 25 miles away, and about a half hour drive when there is NO traffic.  Budget time accordingly.  It's rare that there is no traffic.  I
usually leave the car at Avistar if I am staying more than overnight.  Go to
www.avistarparking.com, click the discounts and coupons link, and
bring the coupon with you.  I've recently signed up for the frequent parking, and have already earned two free days of parking.
Heading to Westchester or Connecticut?  Try 287 to the Tappan Zee Bridge, and avoid NYC entirely.  It's a short distance longer
as the crow flies than the GW Bridge, but the time made up can more than compensate.  287N to 80E will get you to the GW.

Going to Brooklyn or Long Island -- 287 South heads to the Outerbridge then Verrazano.  If backed up, 78 to Turnpike will take you
to the Goethals, then Verrazano.
Route 202 and 206 also traverse through the towns.
