Default Alternates to NJT for Princeton are - NYC

So NJT of course approved 25% hikes..the townhalls were a big joke. We need to send them a message and stopped using them.

I might not have an option though..I commute from Princeton area--unless anyone knows of alternates ways to the City?

Thanks!!

Amtrak, which is going to cost you more anyway because there are so few stops-there are buses too but I can't speak to the cost.

Amtrak doesn't stop at Princeton JCT every since NJT took over there "Clocker" service , I'm sure by July NJT will lower the fares , the ammount of money they will lose will be devastating.

I actually just checked the schedule and sure enough Princeton Junction only gets three New York bound Amtrak stops per day. Oddly enough they're all in the evening. You could still go from Trenton-there's much more parking there anyway.

As someone previously mentioned, Suburban Transit is another choice.

Thanks, looking into it. I will do everything possible to not take NJT. For my pocketbook but also out of principal.
