Top Tips For Renting a Car in Jersey City

  • Located only a stone’s throw away from the hustle and bustle of New York City, Jersey City has a well-established identity centered around arts, music, sports, and exceptional food. Renting a car during your trip to Jersey City will help you capitalize on the city’s incredible location, sitting just across the Hudson River from the array of Manhattan attractions and equally close to the Jersey Shore and the expanse of beach towns and resorts. Having a rental car will provide you the freedom to set your own schedule travel at your own pace.
  • Newark Liberty International Airport is located only 10 miles from downtown Jersey City and is host to a long list of major global rental companies including Avis, Alamo, Budget, and Hertz. The counters for all rental agencies are located at station P3 of the airport, a short Air Train ride from station P2. Also consider flying to either Teterboro Airport or John F. Kennedy International Airport, both about a one-hour drive from Jersey City.
  • Being part of the Greater New York City metropolitan area means that there are people everywhere; on the roads, on sidewalks, in parked cars, in alleyways. Be aware of the fact that conditions on Jersey City roads are constantly changing and it is important to stay concentrated and yield to pedestrians.
  • Jersey City experiences significant rush hour traffic from 6:30 am to 9:30 am in the morning, as well as between 4 pm and 7 pm in the evening. It is advisable to avoid or minimize the driving that you do during these periods and instead look towards the reliable public transport system as a viable alternative.
