Getting to Princeton

Princeton is located between New York and Philadelphia, and is easy to reach by public transportation or by car. On-campus visitor parking is free.

The closest and most conveniently accessed international airport is Newark Liberty International.

The University is easily accessible by train, which runs along the Northeast Corridor line and also stops at the Newark airport. Both Amtrak and NJ TRANSIT trains stop at Princeton Junction Station. Travelers can then transfer to a single-car train operated by NJ TRANSIT, known locally as the “Dinky,” for the five-minute ride to Princeton Station.* The station is located on Alexander Street at the southern end of campus.

*PLEASE NOTE: Dinky train service will be temporarily replaced by bus service from Sunday, October 14 to mid-January 2019 due to ongoing positive train controls (PTC) work on the NJ Transit rail system. The following alternatives will be available during this time:

  • NJ Transit Replacement Service: NJ Transit will operate replacement bus service according to the existing Dinky scheduled departures. NJ Transit will be discounting all NJ Transit rail tickets/passes 10% during this time and Dinky rail passes will be honored on the replacement buses.
  • Tiger Transit – 693 Alexander: The 693 Alexander bus makes the following stops at Princeton Junction: 7:20 AM, 8:00 AM, 8:35 AM, 3:39 PM, 4:19 PM, 4:59 PM, 5:39 PM, 6:13 PM. Click here for full route and timetable information.
