Traveling from John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK)
JFK Airport is about four hours from Princeton when traveling by public transportation and about two hours by car, assuming no delays. JFK Airport's web site has public ground transportation information posted here.
We recommend you take the "NYC Airporter" service to Penn Station in New York City and then a New Jersey Transit train to Princeton Junction Station.
NYC Airporter service
You can take the "NYC Airporter" service to Penn Station in New York City. You will find information on the "NYC Airporter" service here.
From New York's Penn Station you would take a New Jersey Transit train to Princeton Junction Station. You will find information on New Jersey Transit train schedules here.
You should select the "Northeast Corridor" Rail Line Schedule and look for the Saturday/Sunday/Holiday section to find information on trains to Princeton on Sunday, July 16.
From “Princeton Junction,” you may take a taxi (at a cost of about $20 US) or you may take the New Jersey Transit shuttle train (sometimes referred to as the “DINKY”) from the Princeton Junction station to the Princeton station, then you may walk to the Institute (about 20 minutes) or your program housing (about 10 minutes). If you plan to take the Dinky it is cheaper to buy a single ticket from JFK Airport to Princeton rather than separate tickets from JFK Airport to Princeton Junction and from Princeton Junction to Princeton. We will provide participants staying in program housing with further details when we notify them of their specific housing assignments shortly before the start of the program.
PLEASE NOTE: As of January 8, 2018, service on the NEC and NJCL will be adjusted to accommodate Amtrak track rehabilitation work at New York Penn Station. During this time, schedules will be modified. Other train lines may have slight adjustments.
