A wonderfully convenient location for New Jersey Residents in area where Essex, Passaic and Morris counties intersect. Right off of Route 80, 46 or 23, the Willowbrook Mall houses this large bus station Park 'n Ride right near the Bloomingdale Department Store. Busses leave early in the morning, around ten or so minutes apart, so being dependent upon a tight schedule is no longer a concern. Get there early and have plenty of spots to pick from. Evening commutes back from NYC are just as easy, as there are plenty of bus service schedules to pick from. It generally takes, give or take, 25 minutes to or from the city.
There is plenty of shelter from the weather, and three kiosks for purchasing your daily/monthly bus tickets, along with paying for the nominal parking fee.
Also, if you have any last minute shopping to do at the end of your commuting day, the whole Willowbrook Mall is right there for you to shop in. Major anchor stores are Sears, JC Penny, Macys, many small boutiques and of course many restaurants.
