Ask the driver to let you off at the end of Nassau Street where it meets Mercer Street and Route 206 in Princeton, and walk to the Seminary.
From New York City (and north) and Philadelphia (and south)
New Jersey Transit services Princeton from the north (New York City, Newark), with connecting service from the south (Trenton, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington DC). Amtrak trains stop in Trenton, and some at Princeton Junction.
Due to Princeton University’s Art and Transit Project construction, we recommend using TigerPaww, the free bus service, instead of the Dinky to Princeton Junction or vice versa (it is a shorter walk to/from the Seminary). Click here for more information.
