Thinking About Your Commute?
Commuting from here couldn’t be easier. As I mentioned, Convent Station has a New Jersey Transit rail station on the Morristown Line, which is located adjacent to the College of Saint Elizabeth. It provides Midtown Direct service to Penn Station in NYC. Other nearby train stations are in Morris Plains and Morristown too. Although convent has the most parking options in my opinion. You can also hop on a bus to NYC in many locations. Since you’re about 35 miles from eth city- your drive will take you about 45 minutes to an hour depending on the traffic.
Being in Morris Township will also bring you close to many major highways such as Routes 24, 124, 202 and Interstate 287. Nearby is also easy access to Interstates 78 and Rte. 80 as well as Routes 10 and 46.
