Train Travel



The University campus is easily accessible by train. New Jersey Transit operates a single-car train, known locally as the "Dinky," for the five-minute ride from Princeton Station to Princeton Junction. Princeton Station is located on University Place at the southern end of campus, across from McCarter Theatre. At Princeton Junction, travelers can transfer to trains operated by Amtrak and New Jersey Transit along the Northeast Corridor rail line.
