The Borough of Metuchen is located 25 miles southwest of Manhattan and 2 miles west of where the New Jersey Turnpike intersects with the Garden State Parkway. Its southern boundary is defined by Interstate 287 where that interstate changes into Route 440 and continues eastward into Staten Island becoming the West Shore Expressway. The Borough is conveniently served by the New Jersey Transit Northeast Corridor Line from New York to Trenton with a stop at Main Street in the Borough’s downtown. This station also serves as a connection point for many local New Jersey Transit bus routes with connections to Fords, Plainfield, Perth Amboy, Raritan, Piscataway and much of Edison.
Newark International Airport is 15 miles from Metuchen and Amtrak trains are accessible at Metro Park, the next station north of the New Jersey Transit Northeast Corridor Line.
