Ride needed from Nutley,NJ(near NYC)-plz help!!!

Hey. This isn't actually for me, it's for a desperate friend who has been planning Otakon for months now and working his ass off to pay for it all, but cannot afford both train and hotel and needs a ride.
He would of course chip in whatever you asked for gas or tolls to and from Baltimore.

He lives in Nutley NJ, which is right near Route 3 and pretty close to routes 80, 46, and the Garden State Parkway. The town is about 20-30mins. outside of NYC, depending on traffic.

He's really desperate, but me I wad supposed to go with my family, but now I have to take the train...and he looked at the prices and just can't So, if you or someone you know could help this guy out, you can post here, or IM him on AIM (enslaveyourmind), or call him at 862-571-1932.

Thank you!! I know it's short notice, but I believe someone out there will help.

You have a car, right?
See my friend doesn't, that's the issue for him.
If you have a car to get down there with, I'm sure you could discuss splitting costs with him. Just call or IM him and see what he says.
Idk how much you're looking to get but talk it over you can probably work something out.

Sara55clint: What I was going to suggest, and what may work for you is check out the Peter Pan bus line. I've rarely had problems with it, it's about $34 for a round trip and depending on the gas prices and parking and how many people are in the car it's roughly equal (and in some cases of gas guzzling cars) to getting a ride from someone. There are cheaper ones such as megabus, but it's kind of hit or miss

My boyfriend and I are driving down from LI, NY. We've picked up people in the past in jersey for Katsucon trips (bout the same distance, a little further actually).

If you are interested in a ride, shoot me a PM and I'll talk with him about it. I have an SUV which can fit max 5 (including my BF and me, so 3 others).

Sadly it can't be free but we usually only charge for gas and tolls.
