There are multiple public transportation options available, including bus, rail, air and ferry service. NJ Transit provides bus service to the Port Authority Bus Terminal in Midtown Manhattan on the 131, 135 and 139 routes; on the 64 and 67 to both Jersey City and Newark.[35] The Matawan train station provides a heavily used train station on New Jersey Transit‘s North Jersey Coast Line, providing service directly to New York Pennsylvania Station via Secaucus Junction, with a transfer available for trains to Newark Liberty International Airport. However, both options provide significant problems in terms of lack of available parking, which may require waiting periods of more than a year for a permit and private parking options are very expensive.[36]

Ferry service is available through the SeaStreak service in Highlands, a trip that involves about a 45 minute drive on secondary roads from Marlboro to reach the departing terminal. SeaStreak offers ferry service to New York City with trips to Pier 11 (on the East River at Wall Street) and East 35th Street in Manhattan.[37]

Following the closure of the Marlboro Airport, Monmouth Executive Airport in Farmingdale, Old Bridge Airport and Mar Bar L Farms municipal airport supply short-distance flights to surrounding areas and are now the closest air transportation services.
