Hi. From Times Square walk 4 min to Port Authority and buy a ticket to bus 111. Easy and cheap. Trip takes about 30 min per one way.
I took a subway to Port Authority bus station and then NJ TRANSIT bus 111 which picks and drops at the main entrance of The Mills at Jersey Gardens. A return ticket for bus 111 costs around $13 if I remember correctly. Very easy.
We took an Uber but actually there is a bus goung there as well...
Catch the bus from the port authority
