It is one train ride and takes approximately 25-30 minutes.

Adult One Way $15.00
Child/Senior/Disabled One Way $11.25*

Service is quite frequent. Be aware that these trains have other stops and may be crowed with commuters headed to Manhattan during the morning rush hour.

Details can be found on NJ Transit's web site:

I guess I am a bit confused. Is the Airtrain just the airport's people moving system between terminals, like a monorail? I thought it was the train that took you into Manhattan, but you are saying that we need to get on the NJ Transit system at the airport (EWR) and go to Penn Station...? correct?

This is what I am looking at- of course I may be confusing myself- that would not be unusual.

I ride the NJ Transit everyday. The train to and from the airport is not the train that will take you into the city. The train from the airport is more of a tram that will take you to a connecting train that will take you into NY Penn Station so; 2 trains.. NJ Transit to Newark Liberty ( I think that's the station stop ), then you cross over and wait for the train to the airport.

Thankyou- that is helpful. The Airtrain website makes it look like it's THE train that takes you into Manahattan.

This needs a bit of clarification. You do have to take the tram that goes between terminals and the train station. It is only a few minutes depending on the terminal you board it at. It is similar to many other airports trams.
