TRAVEL INFORMATION TO PRINCETON

Princeton University is located in central New Jersey approximately 50 miles southwest of New York City and 45 miles northeast of Philadelphia. The main campus intersection is Washington Road and Nassau Street. To reach Princeton, we recommend one of the following routes:

BY PLANE:

From Newark Airport

The  OLYMPIC  AIRPORTER shuttle has an information counter at the baggage claim area in each terminal at Newark Airport. Reservations can be made at the desk when you arrive at the airport for your trip to Princeton. However, advance reservations are recommended. The Airporter also provides return service from Princeton to Newark. Reservations must be made in advance. The one-way trip from Newark to Princeton costs approximately $38 per person and takes approximately 90 minutes. Please contact the Princeton Airporter for specifics and   make reservations online at http://olympic-limo.com/shuttle-princeton-fares-info-timetable.html .

From the Philadelphia Airport

Take the SEPTA (Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority) airport shuttle train to 30TH STREET STATION. The shuttle stops on the lower level of every terminal and costs approximately $6.
