NJ Transit has been rated one of the best public transit rail systems in the country. It's really nice to live someplace where you can actually take a train somewhere. It would be even better if there were more lines that were intrastate--for me to get to any place north or south of me I have to go through Newark. Luckily, they're looking into it.
NJ Transit connects with the PATH system, the Long Island Rail Road, the NYC Subway system, SEPTA, the Metro-North Commuter Railroad, and Amtrak. You can get almost anywhere on the eastern seaboard by train if you desire.
