Or, Hamilton is between Princeton Junction and Trenton and there is parking there, but you would have to drive to 130 South to 195 to 295 and hit Hamilton station and take NJ Transit one stop to Trenton. Not impossible but a pain in the behind. In either case you would then take NJ Transit to Trenton and change to SEPTA, which will take you to Center City Phila.
I disagree. It is only about 45 miles or so. Leaving early, it can be done no more than an hour and then 20 minutes on the train.

It's 45 or so miles versus 30 to Trenton. No brainer for me because I'd be on the road early. His parking and train pass in Trenton will be more expensive than Patco offset somewhat by the extra 15 miles. And 295 is a breeze before 7am.
