I'm thinking of renting in Jersey City and commuting most days to Princeton. Do you think this is achievable due to traffic etc? I assumed it would take around 1hr (around peak times). A friend said it shouldn't be as long travelling South in the morning and North in the evening as the majority of traffic is travelling the other way, would this be right?

I would have said yes for other way round (by train).
if possible look for some place closer to princeton. Major connecting route: 1, 18, 95. All are packed in peak hours.

Thanks Sar84. What about if I looked a bit further West to areas like Morristown? Would that commute still be around the 1hr mark? And be just as busy at peak times?

I would budget an hour and a half for something like that. Even if you took 287 to 206, the traffic around the Somerville Circle is hectic at that time. And from Hillsborough through the west end of Princeton by the airport is always stop-and-go.
