I am moving into an apartment about 2 miles from the Princeton Junction train station. I will be commuting into NYC on the NJ transit train. Are there bike racks to lock up a bike at the Princeton Junction station? Follow-up questions, are they covered or open and do they get ridiculously filled up with tons of bikes?

One more question, if I bought a scooter (say a Vespa), would I have to pay for parking at the station?

Thanks so much.

There are bike racks at Princeton Jct station (some are covered).

They also have bike lockers available for rent.

I don't know about scooter parking. Call the WW Parking Authority and ask about that.
Number is 609 799-3130.

If you have a monthly train pass, it includes the bus to the train from locations that close in. If you don't get the monthly, it should be only 70 cents each way (use exact change -- no change is given back). Several people take either bus #612 or #600. The #612 stops outside of the Avalon apartments. The NJ Transit site has all the stops and times for each route. The buses seem to run from 2 minutes early to 6 minutes late, but they all get you to the station well ahead of the train. Just arrive 2-3 minutes ahead of the scheduled time.

I asked the WWPA about scooters a couple of months back. Scooters are treated as motorcycles for parking purposes -- you need a parking permit. This holds even if the scooter is under the 50cc cutoff for needing a motorcycle license in NJ. One of the lots reserved for West Windsor residents has only a 140 person waiting list at the moment. In contrast, the Alexander Road lot open to everyone has a waiting list of over 2,000, which may translate to about 8 years ...

One thing to mention is that on occasion, there have been bike thefts at the station. Not many but it would be a hassle to get off the train to find your bike missing. Friends of mine who bike use an older bike that they've done some creative spray painting on or double lock their bike. This isn't to scare you off, just to give you a heads up.
