Travel Advisory: No Direct NJ Transit to Newark Airport

According to a Port Authority press release, AirTrain Newark service will be suspended for approximately 75 days beginning Thursday, May 1, 2014. The closure is necessary to allow critical repairs to the airport rail system. 

That means that Reunions travelers flying in to Newark Airport (EWR) will either need to take a shuttle bus to Newark Penn Station before heading south to Princeton Junction or arrange for taxi or car service. Of greater concern is the return trip. To avoid missed flights, travelers should allow extra time for the shuttle bus from Newark Penn Station to the airport or make alternate travel arrangements. 

The Dinky train at the new Princeton Station

An additional surprise awaits classmates arriving via the Dinky. The new temporary Princeton Station is located a 5-minute walk south-east of the old, demolished Dinky station. On-campus Tiger Transit shuttles circulate near the new station for those who don’t want to carry their luggage the extra distance.
