Buses to Replace Dinky Shuttle Next Two Weekends, Weekdays 9:20 a.m to 3:30 p.m.

DinkyBus service will replace the dinky shuttle between downtown Princeton and Princeton Junction the weekends of July 27-28 and Aug. 3-4 due to the construction of the new Princeton Station.

Beginning Monday, July 29, and continuing through Friday, Aug. 2, buses also will replace rail shuttle service between Princeton and thePrinceton Junction Station from approximately 9:20 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. each day.

Buses will depart from locations near the rail platform at both Princeton Junction and Princeton stations.

Beginning the evening of Monday, July 29, and continuing to the morning of Thursday, Aug. 1, there will be overnight roadwork in University Place between the hours of 8 p.m. and 5 a.m. Underground utility construction will occur on University Place near the Princeton Station buildings. University Place will be open for two-way traffic during these hours, but it will alternate onto one lane at a time in the work area. Princeton Police will be on site to provide traffic control.

There will be additional roadwork in University Place in the same area, also with one lane of through traffic at a time, on Saturday, Aug. 3, between the hours of 8 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.

The location of the taxi stand on University Place at Princeton Station will be relocated as of Monday, July 29. Taxis will be available from a new location adjacent to the station, in the meter parking lot. Signage will direct passengers to this new location.

  • instead of buses what about a pedestrian bike walk path parallel to the dinky would
    greatly eliminate unnecessary traffic along Alexander Road and off Route 1

  • The Princeton Dinky is the shortest scheduled commuter rail line in the United States – and one of its end points will be closing soon. Going from Princeton Junction, NJ to the campus of Princeton University, at 2.9 miles, it runs throughout the day between the two points, taking only five minutes to get between stops. However, the 1918 PRR station in Princeton NJ will be closing soon, and the station stop will be relocated almost 500 feet away. This is your last chance to get out and see this old, historic station – and BJVP was there to get video of not only the station, but video along the line as well. Enjoy this rare look at the Budd Arrow III-powered Princeton Dinky!
