Last time I came through I took a bus to midtown, $14 one way, $22 round trip. Runs every 15 minutes. There was a shared shuttle there that runs around hourly, $15 to anywhere in Manhattan. I think the taxis are $45 flat rate now, but you still have to pay tolls + tip.

Actually... the best way from Newark to Manhattan is by NJTransit Trains. Take Newark AirTrain (free) from your terminal to the main rail station. Then transfer to NJ Transit Northeast (Red) or Coast (Blue) lines. Northeast line has its terminal at NY Penn Station and Coast line terminates at either Hoboken or NY Penn so make sure you are getting on the right train. It's about 14 bucks for either line into Manhattan. It's also quicker and faster than the bus.

the cheapest way is to take the monorail at Newark Airport to the Airtrain NJ Tranist Rail Station to Newark Penn Station. That 1 mile trip will cost you about $6.

Then at Newark Penn Station, get on the PATH train and take it to the World Trade Center. That costs you $1.50.

So that's about $7.50 total.

All is well and good taking the trains into New York City--however if you are loaded down with luggage it is a nightmare. The system is not wheelchair or stroller friendly so rolling luggage will have to be lifted, lugged and carried. Depending on where you disembark sometimes you go up two flights of stairs. There are very few escalators or elevators, lots of times they are under repair. Not to mention the irritation of your fellow passengers when you are trying to maneuver your luggage and they are in a hurry to move on.

Also, if there are more than two of you traveling, factor that in to the cost of the cab. You can split the cab fare. First trip into the city I would not cut costs on a good ride in--the view is more exciting in a cab. You are tired from the flight and don't want to get lost with luggage. Cut costs another way.
