Cost and Tickets

The cost of AirTrain Newark depends on your travel preferences. Here are some details to guide you.  

Within the airport, AirTrain is free

If you use AirTrain to connect between the airline terminals, parking lots, hotel shuttles and rental car facilities, there is no fee to pay and no ticket is required.

AirTrain is affordable

When you buy a NJ TRANSIT or Amtrak ticket to or from Newark Liberty International Airport Station, that one ticket includes the AirTrain Newark portion, which is $5.50. The AirTrain access fee is not charged for children 11 and under or for customers using monthly passes with the airport as the origin or destination.

Contact PATH, NJ TRANSIT or Amtrak for more information on fares, discounted monthly tickets, ten-trip tickets and other special fares. All fares are subject to change.

Show your ticket twice

You must use your ticket twice regardless of which direction you’re traveling. You’ll need to show the ticket to the conductor on the NJ TRANSIT or Amtrak train, and you’ll need the ticket to pass through the fare line at Newark Liberty International Airport Station. Be sure to take the ticket with you.

Weekly or monthly tickets

If you already have a NJ TRANSIT or Amtrak ticket, including a commuter weekly or monthly ticket to a destination past the Newark Liberty International Airport Station, you may use it to get to or from the Airport Station. However, you will also need to purchase a separate $5.50 NJ TRANSIT ticket at the Airport Station from ticket machines located within the station.
