A shuttle bus service called "Airporter" operates between
Princeton and Newark Airport. The fare between the two places is $28. On-line reservation is possible through their web site (www.goairporter.com). You may also call them at 1-800-385-4000.  Advance reservation (48 hours) is required for the shuttle service.

 

If you are staying in Scully Hall get off the shuttle at the Baker Rink stop on the Princeton University Campus.  Walk toward the Campus/Visitor Access Booth on Elm Drive and go straight to Scully Hall. This should take less than 5 minutes.

 

The shuttle also stops at the Nassau Inn.

Princeton and Newark Airport runs about $102 inclusive of tolls and gratuities.  Andy's taxi at 609-462-6963 and AAA taxi at 609-921-1177 are recommended by the Nassau Inn.

The train runs every 30 minute on the weekdays. One way fare between the Newark Airport and Princeton is $14.50. Buy the ticket at the Newark International Airport station to Princeton (Northeast Corridor line). Ride the train to Princeton Junction.
