Hi all -

One of the things I am still struggling with as far as planning my NY state section hike is getting to/from each end back to my hometown.

Ideally, I would like to start right at the NJ/NY border and work NOBO to the NY/CT border...I am coming from the Syracuse area and would need public transportation/taxi/shuttle combination of some kind.

What I'd like to do is travel from Syracuse to NYC, and then from NYC somehow get to the NJ border to start my hike; then on the way back, I would need to get from the CT end back to NYC to return to Syracuse.

Any thoughts? This is the one area of prep/planning that is stressing me out and I'm not knowledgeable with what options might be available.

Thank you for your help!
