Princeton University is conveniently nestled between Newark, New York City, and Philadelphia. Delegations may opt to get to Princeton one of several ways:
NJ Transit's Northeast Corridor passes through the Princeton area and stops at Princeton Junction; at Princeton Junction, delegations visiting Princeton's campus will find a rail shuttle that takes riders directly from Princeton Junction to the southwest corner of Princeton's campus; delegations flying into Newark, New York City, or Philadelphia airports will likely find NJ Transit to be the most efficient means of getting to campus.
Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR), John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK), and Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) are all connected to Princeton's campus via rail networks:
EWR: Take the Airtrain to Airport Station; at Airport Station, transfer to the Northeast Corridor train to Princeton Junction; at Princeton Junction, transfer to the rail shuttle to Princeton (approximately 1.5-hour transit time).
JFK: Take the Airtrain to Jamaica Station; at Jamaica Station, transfer to the Long Island Railroad train or E Line subway to New York Pennsylvania Station; at Pennsylvania Station, transfer to NJ Transit's Northeast Corridor train to Princeton Junction; at Princeton Junction, transfer to the rail shuttle to Princeton (approximately 3.0-hour transit time).
PHL: Take the Airport Line train to 30th St. Station; at 30th St. Station, transfer to the Trenton Line train to Trenton Transit Center; at Trenton Transit Center, transfer to NJ Transit's Northeast Corridor train to Princeton Junction; at Princeton Junction, transfer to the rail shuttle to Princeton (approximately 2.5-hour transit time).
