Princeton University has introduced a new P-Rides shuttle line that will serve the campus community including visitors to the University. The free shuttle service, which covers the eastern region of campus, began operation on Monday, Nov. 17.

"We know this new service will be embraced by both the University and local community since it will reduce parking on municipal streets and ease traffic congestion," said Charles Kalmbach, the University's senior vice president for administration.

The new P-Rides shuttle will ferry passengers from Lot 21 to Washington Road stops serving the South Campus and Prospect Avenue area. The bus will turn right on William Street to service the North Campus/Firestone area and then will turn onto Olden Street for service to the Engineering Quadrangle before traveling back to Lot 21. The shuttles will run from 7:30 a.m. to 11 p.m., every five minutes during peak hours and every 10 minutes during off-peak hours, Monday through Friday. Free refreshments will be available to morning riders during the shuttle's first two weeks of service.

More details are available in a news release.
