Raritan Valley Line

Garwood is a New Jersey Transit (NJT) railroad station on the Raritan Valley Line, in Garwood, New Jersey. There are two short, low platforms (long enough for approximately 1-2 cars) - one on each side; passengers using the Newark-bound platform must cross over a siding track. Access to neighboring stations is available on the 59 or 113 bus, traveling between Cranford and Westfield stations.

In June 2011, a ticket vending machine (TVM) was installed on the Newark-bound platform. Although unlike any NJT station, there is no waiting room or a ticket office at this station. Passengers can purchase tickets from Garwood using the TVM without the $5 surcharge.

Garwood Station has been identified as the western terminus of the Union go bus expressway, a proposed bus rapid transit line utilizing the a portion of the abandoned Central Railroad of New Jersey (CNJ) right-of-way between it and Midtown Station, a transit hub combining the NJT station and the former CNJ station in Elizabeth.[2] [3][4]
