This guy has unlocked the key to a chaos-free commute and it doesn’t require a car, bus or subway.

David Pike beat the hectic New York City commute from New Jersey to Brooklyn with one inventive purchase — a jet ski.

Pike spoke to “GMA” moments before embarking on his route from Jersey City on his way into work.

“My company, New York Trolley, is in Brooklyn, and every day it would take me 90 minutes; I’d have to take the bus to the subway to the PATH to another bus and all the while I’m just looking across the harbor like, ‘I just need to go there, how can I do it?'” he wondered.
