travel from new york

I am staying in manhattan in september and want to do day trip trip to asbury park have looked up best travel options and the train seems limited with times and also duration (nearly 2 hours) i noticed bus goes but also seems long and might need to change! Just wondering if i'm looking it up wrong or are there no direct trains or buses? Only going for the day so the quickest and most straight forward way would be best - any suggestions much appreciated

Train is best option. njtransit.com

You change in Long Branch but is very easy. Just walk across platform to waiting train.

The train is almost always quicker and easier than the bus. Here's the link to the NJ Transit schedule finder:
