Traveling to Princeton, NJ

Airports
Princeton is easily accessible from three airports.
  • Trenton-Mercer Airport (TTN): Frontier airlines flies into Trenton-Mercer Airport from select cities. Please note that, because this is a small airport, flight options are limited and there are not many options for rescheduling. However, the airport is a quick taxi ride from Princeton. There are also limited rental car options available. 
  • Newark Airport (EWR): From Newark airport, a monorail is available to take you to the Newark Airport station of NJ Transit. See below for information on traveling by train to Princeton. Rental car options are also available. 
  • Philadelphia Airport (PHL): Travel from Philadelphia airport to Princeton by train is more complicated. You must first take a SEPTA train to Center City Philadelphia, then transfer to a SEPTA or Amtrak train to Trenton. From Trenton, you can get a NJ Transit train to Princeton. See below for information on traveling to the university on NJ Transit. Rental car options are also available.
Train Stations
Princeton University has its own train station stop; however, it is only accessible as a connection from Princeton Junction.
  • Traveling on Amtrak: The most convenient option is to travel by Amtrak to Princeton Junction train station. There you can purchase an NJ Transit ticket for the connection to Princeton Station. This is a small train (nicknamed the "Dinky") that will take you on the 5 minute ride to the university. Amtrak also stops at Trenton, Hamilton, or Metropark, where you can connect to NJ Transit.

  • Traveling on NJ Transit: You can directly book a ticket on NJ Transit to Princeton (NOT Princeton Junction). The NJ transit train will stop at Princeton Junction, where you can then transfer to the connecting train (nicknamed the "Dinky"), which will take you to Princeton Station.
