Or, you could have her go to newark penn station, and take the AM train to new brunswick. She can take the 62 bus right from the terminals to newark penn. I would recommend getting to newark no later than 5 am no earlier than 3. Check the schedules, use trip planner, call customer service, whatever you need to do to get correct overnight route 62 info from the airport to newark penn.
After that, its simply a matter of getting on train 181 the 6:21 am departure. Call amtrak to see if that is the correct time and ask about other trains that might cut the wait.
That is how you do that with no njt trains running and not spending a fortune. If you have any questions or need further help PM me and i'll get back to you ASAP.
The 181 train is 28 bucks, the bus is like 2 bucks. Due to the storm craziness they may simply have her board with no ticket since its not her fault njt isn't running. Can't hurt to ask the conductors either. There may be dozens of others needing to make the same trip & in these kinds of situations amtrak would simply have them board at newark. Can't be leaving people stranded.
