public transit from Newark aiport to Manhattan (Times Square

Someone told me that public transit from Newark Airport is so much easier than LaGuardia. This that true ? There is a flight I am looking at for my return that leaves Newark at 7am. Would there be a train from Manhattan to Newark airport at 4am ? Or is it just best to fly in and out of LaGuardia and take a cab ?

Thank you for any help you may have.

If your flight is on a weekday then NJ Transit trains operate at 4 am from NY Penn Station to Newark Airport Station. You do not exit the train at Newark Penn Station, exit at Newark Airport Station. You will then have to take the airtrain(monorail) to your terminal. Keep your train ticket to board airtrain.

If you are departing on a weekend, no train until 5:10 am.

unless you are flying United out of terminal C at EWR, I would go with LGA, just because there will be more options airside in terms of food and shopping, especially that early
