@D1 Since when? I took one home a couple of weeks ago and it was ~$40

I have to do this Friday am! Not sure why I thought a super early flight out of nj was a good idea. How bad do you think it is at 5am?

@D3 have done that a few times myself. Many regrets. Depending on your airline, leave lots of time for TSA. I fly AA and the lines are horrendous. May be better on a Friday. But the Uber ride will be swift and painless. And not $100 unless something's just changed.

Extremely not bad

I paid 54$ from PABT to Newark. No traffic. The tolls killed me.

Oh maybe rates went down since I did this which is great - my ubers were seriously 80-90$ getting home. Maybe because i live in bk?

You're right - my bad, D4. Park slope is def NOT the city.

Ha, that'd do it @D1. I'm in the EV. Mind you, first time I took a cab to EWR it was $$110 due to whatever crazy fees they charge.

Around $80 because you have to pay round trip toll and a fee for NJ

First Uber driver got nailed by the cops for improper registration. So I jumped out and got into another one. $58 or so ride to the east side.
