Hoboken is listed on all schedules as the station for train arrivals or departures as it was the eastern rail terminus (at the Lackawanna Terminal although these schedules call it Erie R.R. Terminal - see below) for the Erie's suburban commuter train service (since 1956). A ferry trip was required to end the trip in New York or to take a train from Hoboken.

Or it could be reached by the Hudson & Manhattan Railroad (the Tubes): "Hudson and Manhattan Tube Trains operate to and from Erie. R.R. Terminal in Hoboken."
