I officially hate NJ transit

There is no translation from NJ transit maps to street maps.
How the fuck should I know where all of these microlocalities actually reside?
Why they fuck can't you provide a street map with bus stations listed on it.

GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

the main map just has street names without a real map reference

but specific lines to, just go to njtransit.org - go to search - "map"

It's so incomplete. Those maps are just rail, and the Hoboken map is too low res to be useful.

The bus maps are station-to-station. I'd have to individually look up the station addresses to find out where they are.

The trip planner helped some. It tells a cross-street, and maps connections for you.

Turns out, rail is out, and bus is out. Bus from hotel to office is 2.5 hours (about 5 or 6 miles). Rail only goes to the office in the PM and to the hotel in the AM.

Luckily, there's a bus from the hotel to 42nd in manhattan that runs every hour and takes 15 mins. That's convenient for visiting the city.

To get to the hotel, I'll have to take a cab.

To get to the office, I'll have to ride with someone.

before you go
you could superimpose the rail map with google in photoshop or something and print it out /=

The system maps are rail only, and are non-scalable (aka GIF images, with Hoboken line too low-res to be usable).

PS. The trip planner doesn't render properly in FF.
