Please send any questions to:

The NJ Transit Northeast Corridor rail line stops at the Princeton Junction station. Amtrak also serves this station twice daily, but it will likely be easier to take Amtrak to Trenton or New York Penn Station, and transfer there to an NJ Transit train.

At Princeton Junction, you can transfer to the "Dinky" train which runs from Princeton Junction to Princeton station, leaving you about a 10 minute walk from the Nassau Inn (the Hyatt Regency shuttle can pick you up from either the Princeton Junction or Princeton train station, be sure to schedule a pick-up). If transferring to the Dinky, be sure to buy a ticket to Princeton and not Princeton Junction. For schedules and fares, please refer to the NJ Transit website.


Taxis are usually available at the Princeton Junction train station, or by calling the Nassau Street Taxi Stand at 609-924-3383. NOTE: Princeton taxis do not have meters. A ride to downtown usually costs $25. Confirm the price with your driver before the trip, to avoid confusion. Or, call your hotel for a shuttle pickup.


Ground Transportation

Metered (coin-pay) parking is available on Olden, Williams, and Prospect streets adjacent to the conference site. Parking is free in Lot 21 (FitzRandolph and Faculty Road), but is 10 minutes' walk from the conference. Street parking is not allowed overnight: park overnight in the public garage on Spring Street instead. Those staying at the Nassau Inn can obtain a parking pass for the Hulfish & Chambers garage at the front desk, with the cost added to the bill.
