This year for the Festival we’re excited to team up with NJTransit and the Greater Newark Convention & Visitors Bureau to green the Festival and help you get to Newark easily. Thanks to their help, we are excited to offer $10 NJ Transit rail round-trip tickets from anywhere in New Jersey or New York Penn Station to Downtown Newark. And once you’re in town, your ticket will be honored on Newark Light Rail and Downtown Newark buses. NJTransit will take you from your hometown station–wherever your hometown may be– right to the Festival village.
Please join us in our commitment to sustainability by “greening” your trip this October. The Poetry Festival venues are within a 12-minute walk or a quick light rail ride to Newark’s two major bus/rail stops: Newark Penn Station and Newark Broad Street Station. The Light Rail runs from both train stations and stops directly at NJPAC, making travel quick and easy for any Festival-goer.
You can buy your $10 round trip tickets when you purchase your Festival tickets on the NJPAC Box Office page. Planning your trip is easy with NJTransit’s Advanced Trip Planner which you can find on our Transportation page, as well as a list of other transit options.
