Can anyone tell me the best way to get to Lakewood from EWR by public transportation, and how to get from Lakewood to the Five Towns area - including price estimate?  I know of someone who is trying to figure out whether it would be better to rent a car (pick up EWR, return JFK) or just use public transportation.  Help with rides would also be greatly appreciated.

From EWR is the 67, but only goes a few times a day (12:45pm, 2:58pm, 8:18pm).
Lakewood to jfk is 139/137 to the Manhattan, then the E subway to the airtrain.
I'm not who you think I am.

Thank you.  Is there any other way to get from EWR to Lakewood?  According to Google maps the alternative is through Manhattan.  Also, have you any idea what the buses cost?

Every address that I put in , they claimed was "invalid", and I couldn't find any part of the site where I could find out prices.  It worked better for me a couple of years ago - could be that the issue is because I am overseas?
