Top of the list for most people moving into Maplewood from New York is the ease of access to New York City. Not only is there direct train service to New York City via New Jersey Transit's NYC Midtown Direct train line; the township has made it very easy to access the train, no matter where you live in the township. Most suburban towns have a parking lot at or adjacent to the train station. However, the challenge is being able to get an assigned parking spot - usually there is a rather lengthy list of applicants seeking to obtain a permit to park in the train station lots. Maplewood has eliminated the angst that typically accompanies the commuter's experience. The township offers jitney service from five origination points to the train station. Service operates Monday through Friday, from 6:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. and again at 5:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. Currently, the annual pass fee is $125. Maplewood, NJ - Perfect for the New York Commuter.
