PiTP Travel from Philadelphia Airport


Travel Hints from Philadelphia Airport

Philadelphia Airport is about two hours from Princeton when traveling by public transportation, assuming no delays.

You would take a SEPTA (Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority) train from the Airport into downtown Philadelphia, where you would change to another SEPTA train to travel to Trenton, New Jersey. In Trenton you would change to a New Jersey Transit train to reach Princeton.

SEPTA schedules can be found at: http://www.septa.org/schedules/rail/index.html

You would take an Airport Line (R1) train to 30th Street Station in Center City Philadelphia and transfer to a Trenton Line (R7) train to Trenton, New Jersey.

Upon arrival in Trenton, you would take a New Jersey Transit train to the “Princeton Junction” station.

New Jersey Transit train schedules can be found at:

You should select the "Northeast Corridor" Rail Line Weekend Schedule for trains from Trenton to Princeton on Sunday, July 14.

Upon arrival at the New Jersey Transit “Princeton Junction” train station, you may take a taxi (at a cost of about $20 USD) or you may take the New Jersey Transit shuttle train (sometimes referred to as the "DINKY") from the "Princeton Junction" station to the "Princeton" station, and then you may walk to the Institute or your program housing (both of which will be a 15-minute walk or less from the "Princeton" station. We will provide you with further details when we notify you of your specific housing assignment shortly before the start of the program.)
