Rutherford Overview

Rutherford is a quiet Bergen county town located 8 miles outside of New York City. It is centrally located 12 miles from Newark International Airport, 2 miles from the NJ Turnpike and 4 miles from the Garden State Parkway.

Rutherford is located on New Jersey Transit's Bergen line, and the Secaucus Transfer Station links Rutherford with Amtrak's east coast Boston-Washington line. Residents, commuters and vistors have direct access to mid-town Manhattan. New Jersey Transit buses also run through the town along Union Ave. and Orient Way. The bus line, the 190, takes passengers directly into the Port Authority Bus Terminal in New York City.

The Borough of Rutherford was formed on September 21, 1881.
