United Airlines operates a shuttle bus between Terminals A and C from 5:00am to 10:00pm. In addition, United also operates a shuttle bus connecting Terminal B to Terminals A and C from 10:00am to 10:00pm. The shuttle bus is available at gate A28, B67, and C70 as illustrated in the image above. This service is free and you will not have to go through TSA security again. Please note this shuttle is operated at the sole responsibility of United Airlines and is subject to modification at their discretion.

What is the best way to kill these 8 hours?

I plan to work at the airport (I don't really want to bother going in Manhattan), but at this time of year, it might be crazy in the terminals.

- option A : I buy 2 passes (for 50$ total on ebay) to access the United Club on terminal C or A. I don't know which would be the better one. Will they be packed all day long considering it's Christmas time?
- option B : I stay all day long seated in a restaurant in terminal C. Will they kick me out? Can I connect to the internet in the restaurants? Will I be able to find a power plug? Which restaurant to pick?
- option C : a smarter suggestion from experienced travellers?

Many thanks!
Take a cab to one of the fantastic Portuguese restaurants in Newark's Ironbound district..... you won't need to eat for a few days

I think I should stay in the airport. I thought about getting a room for the day but considering this time of the year (flight will probably be delayed) I think I would waste most of my time waiting (shuttle busses, security check).

I just want a kind of quiet room with a place to seat comfortably and a plug to charge my electronic stuff.

I guess I should rather spend the time in a United Club (terminal A vs. C) rather than in a restaurant in terminal C.

Where is the Concourse A/C shuttle at EWR

So I have a flight connection this week at EWR. I arrive in an E145 most likely in Concourse A and I leave in a B738 in Concourse C and I heard there's a shuttle that'll go from Concourses A and C so I wouldn't have to reenter security. Where exactly am I supposed to find that shuttle in Concourse A? Cause I heard it's kind of hard to find and this will be my first time at EWR.

I can't recall the gate number adjacent to the shuttle entrance (maybe near A28?), but it is not at all difficult to locate. A terminal is a very small circle.

You will see signage and there is either an elevator or a set of stairs to reach the ground level bus area.

Thanks! I'll look for an elevator in the gates area thinking it goes down to the ground level.

I think that it is next to A26. It's very easy to find, and it is likely that the crew on the flight in will know and be able to point you towards the gate.

Consolidated Connection time/logistics-Domestic & International at EWR

I can't remember the gate number either, but if you are facing straight toward security/terminal exit, it is on the right side, by either the closest or second closest gate toward the security hall. Not difficult to find at all.

Just wish they would have the bus stop at the AC concourse in A, next time I'm doing an AC-UA connection so need to re-clear security.

And by the way, E45 onto EWR isn't necessarily A concourse. IME, about half my E45 flights into/out of EWR have been in C.

The bus stop at Terminal A is just to the left of gate A28. You go down a flight of stairs and there's a small waiting room at ground level. There are signs.

Were any of your E45 flights in Concourse C operated by ExpressJet? I'm on one of those. And according to flightaware all the flights from my origin airport (MKE) to EWR were coming in and out of Concouurse A for the last few days.

EWR Terminal A: What time does TSA open?

So I missed my 6:33 AM flight today because when I got to terminal A at 5:30, the TSA line was wrapped around and around far outside the designated line area (not to mention the blue-shirt agent who kept randomly pulling people to a newly formed second non-Precheck lane but assured me I'd be fine to stay in the current lane). Couldn't help but notice that as I approached the x-ray belt, the line extending outside of the TSA agent area had completely evaporated. And as I await my new 11:59 flight, it's clear that EWR is not at all busy today. Kind of ironic that the earliest flights of the day had the longest possible wait at TSA..

Not sure of the answer to your question but EWR Terminal A is a mess. The way they handle pre-check at security is a total sham. Despite getting a "hall pass" for my shoes, I'm more often than not, shunted into a line that is longer. I'm currently flying a lot of United RJ's out of T-A and can't wait to get back to Terminal C

I'm no fan of terminal A, but I've never seen anything like this. Usually there are fewer than 10 people in line before the ID check agent (then of course there is the secondary pre-x-ray line like you mentioned). This morning there was over 100. I've no doubt I could have done TSA at C and taken the shuttle bus to A in less time.

I'm not so sure about that. Only door A has a Premier/PreCheck line. When I was there on 27DEC, both door 2 & 3 had lines that led DOWNSTAIRS. Even PreCheck for me was at least 3x the standard time. Granted that may have been Christmas traffic, but EWR C is usually quite packed.

The best part of Terminal A is Jersey Mike's!

The good news is that Terminal A is going to be replaced. Don't know the projected timeline, though. Hopefully it'll be sooner than the replacement of the "temporary" C/D terminal at IAD!
