Dunellen Mass Transit
(and Other Ways
to Get Here from There)


Dunellen’s mass transit network is what made the town. The borough actually started as a train stop on the Central Railroad of New Jersey train line. In the early part of the 20th century, there also was a trolley line that ran down North Avenue and continued to Bound Brook.

A friend once told me that all roads lead to Dunellen. And that’s almost true! Dunellen is not far from:

  • Rt. 27
  • Rt. 28 (runs through our downtown; aka North Ave. or Bound Brook Rd.)
  • Rt. 78
  • Rt. 202
  • Rt. 206
  • Rt. 287

By Air | Airports

There are numerous nearby airports that have national and international flights which are listed below. In addition, there are a few local airports which are used for private airplanes.

  • Atlantic City International Airport
  • John F. Kennedy International Airport
  • LaGuardia Airport
  • Lehigh Valley International Airport
  • Newark Liberty International Airport
  • Trenton Mercer Airport

By Water | Piers

The era of travelling across the ocean by ship is long gone, but if you are coming to Dunellen by cruiseship, you can arrive at the piers in Bayonne, New York, or Philadelphia. Dunellen is also less than an hour from the Jersey Shore (Sandy Hook / Sea Bright).

In theory, you could kayak to Dunellen… the Green Brook is a tributary of the Raritan River which goes into the Raritan Bay which goes to the Sandy Hook Bay and then to the Atlantic Ocean (technically the NY/ NJ Bight). However, it would take a lot of time. Plus the river current is pretty strong and would wear you out pretty quickly.
