Phili airport to Trenton / Princeton

Any suggestions for the best way to get from the Phili airport to Trenton / Princeton. Seems like it's 3 trains...... and I don't see a convenient bus route. Thanks.

There is no Septa train that I am aware of that goes to the Princeton campus. Even NJT runs a shuttle.

You also could change trains at 30th Street Station to an Amtrak train. It would be faster, but cost more.

So for the "airport train" schedule, would I look on SEPTA.org?

Loonbeam - When you say even NJT runs a shuttle .......shuttle from where to where? Thanks.

Yes. The train from the airport to 30th Street is part of SEPTA's Regional Rail service. It's called the Airport line. Here is the schedule:

The SEPTA Airport line will take you from the Philadelphia Airport to 30th Street Station in Philadelphia.

Then you can transfer to the SEPTA Trenton line to Trenton.

If your friends would prefer not to go to Trenton to pick you up, you can transfer at the Trenton station to the NJ Transit Northeast Corridor line, which will take you to Princeton Junction. Your Princeton friends should be willing to pick you up there. (Beware, if the SEPTA train is late getting to Trenton, the NJ Transit train will not wait for you.)

There is also a NJ Transit shuttle train (known locally as "The Dinky") which goes between Princeton Junction and Princeton. That might be more convenient for your friends, but it's another train connection for you.

You can find schedules at the SEPTA and NJ Transit websites.
