Chatham Borough Uber Accident Lawyers

Those commuting to work, an approximate average of 71.2 percent, and spend an average of 41.2 minutes on the road. While many workers drive themselves to work, there are days when it would make more sense to call an Uber and leave the driving to someone else while working on the way to the job. Most homes in Chatham have two vehicles per household.

There are other forms of transportation available, such as the NJ Transit, which stops at the Chatham Station to offer commuter service on the Morristown Line. The trains head to Penn Station and Hoboken Terminal in Midtown Manhattan. 

Even with the various options available for transportation, people still appreciate having other alternatives, such as Uber service. It is handy not only to get to work and other appointments but also for catching a ride for a night out and not having to worry about parking. As an alternative to driving to work daily, many individuals use a rideshare service like Uber.

New Jersey Route 124 is the main local road allowing drivers to access Chatham and beyond.
