Please purchase the One-way ticket (at cost of $14) directly from NJ Transit Machine inside PENN STATION (or online).
Bring the receipt with you to the retreat and James will refund you directly.
The reason why we don't suggest a two way ticket is because we have enough cars for carpooling back on Sunday.
