If I am traveling from out of town, what is the best way to get to Princeton?
Those flying in to Newark Airport can take New Jersey Transit via train from the airport to Princeton.

If the latter, indicate “Princeton Station” as your final destination when buying your NJ Transit ticket. Frist Campus Center is roughly a 15 minute walk from the university station. Additional information about traveling to campus via train can be found here.
Shuttle buses will be provided to transport participants between the Hyatt Regency Hotel and campus Friday evening after the opening session, Saturday morning, Saturday evening, and again Sunday morning.
Where should I plan to park, and will I have to pay for it?
