I am planning to move to Princeton - how much time does it take door to door? My hours are either very early 7.30AM-5.50 PM or from 9AM-7PM

I appreciate if you can share your experience

Other regions, I am looking to move
* Piscataway
* Edison
* East Brunswick

Please comment pros and cons on moving to above regions. Thanks a bunch for reading this post

There's an awesome site called "njtransit.com" which pretty much will give you the times you need down the minute. And from Edison too!

In all seriousness, if you're going to Princeton to mid-town, your best bet is to take the train from Princeton Junction directly in. It's the fastest way.

The problem is parking. I think there's an parking issue at the PJ station, I could be wrong though.

You can also directly train in from Edison and Piscataway via MetroPark, which I think has better parking.

Door to door? Depends on if you live in Princeton proper (ie, walking distance from the dinky) somewhere further out where you'd need to catch a bus (or possibly drive to the Princeton Junction train station) and what parking is like at Princeton Junction if you do drive.

Parking at Princeton Junction IS a gigantic pain and is very limited. If you live in Princeton proper (ie, not Plainsboro, Kingston, etc) might also have to rely on the dinky which can add more time onto the commute.

The train itself is about an hour (if there's no problems on the Northeast Corridor and you catch a good express at rush hour) but parking, NJ Transit delays, etc can make it quite longer.
