Bus Station
“A major stop on NJ Transit’s Northeast Corridor line, with many trains per day from New York, Newark airport and Trenton. Each day a few Amtrak trains also stop. These include the Keystone and d the Northeast Regional lines, servicing destinations such as Boston, Philadelphia and DC. The Dinky connects this station to the Princeton campus. Another option for getting into town is Lyft/Uber. Regular taxis do park at the station, but the pricing is bizarre ($25 to Princeton?!?!?) and the drivers can be rude.”
