Travelling from Penn Station, New York to Grand Central? Well, there are a few options.
Take the uptown 1, 2, or 3 train from the 7th Avenue side of Penn Station one stop to 42nd Street Times Square. When you are there, safely go up the steps and then make a right at the head of the platform. Next, transfer to the 42nd Street Shuttle (which does not operate late at night) or 7 train to Grand Central.
You can get the M4 and Q32 to pick you up on far side on 32nd Street and 7th Avenue which takes you to Madison Avenue/42nd, 45th, 47th Streets which is all part of Grand Central and Grand Central North.
Take this if you have lots of luggage to deal with and if time is of the essence to get to Grand Central. There are locker storage facility close to Penn Station & the Port Authority and also at Times Square & Grand Central in case you decide to take the option for bus and trains and do not want to carry your luggage.
