Attendees are strongly encouraged to use hotel shuttles, transit, or carpool when traveling to campus, and should expect traffic delays and/or to be redirected to overflow parking in lots, particularly if arriving on Friday afternoon or Saturday morning.
Although we cannot predict what space may be available when you arrive for Reunions, parking professionals will be onsite to direct arriving vehicles to campus lots:
Alternatives to campus traffic and at-capacity lots include parking at the Princeton Junction train station in West Windsor and taking the Dinky to campus. Parking is available for $7 daily (including the option to park for multiple days overnight) with the Dinky running all day and well after midnight on Friday and Saturday. Roundtrip fare is $6. You can find more information about West Windsor Parking here, and look for the Dinky schedule here to plan your trip. Additional, but limited, parking in town includes:
There will be ADA parking available in the north end of Lot 20, with access to frequent golf cart transportation to Forbes College and other Reunions sites.
There is no access to Elm Drive for any personal vehicles during Reunions.
University shuttles will service over 20 hotels in the area. Hotel charters will operate on constant loops, departing every 30-60 minutes depending on the route. Attendees will have access to track buses in real-time using a mobile app. Hotels will be serviced by different numbers of buses based on anticipated demand at each hotel.
When arriving on a hotel shuttle, guests will be dropped off at the Princeton Station Transit plaza (WaWa) adjacent to the north end of West Garage. When departing campus, attendees may board the hotel shuttles from the same location.
The following hotels will be serviced by regular shuttles from 12 p.m.-3 a.m. Thursday, 8 a.m.-3:00 a.m. Friday, and 8 a.m.-3:00 a.m. Saturday. The last departure from campus will be 3:00 a.m. nightly. Make sure that you are at the transit plaza no later than 2:45 a.m. for the final shuttle departure to your hotel.
On campus, a circulator shuttle will provide connections from the Stadium Drive Garage to registration and the transit plaza, Forbes College and the Old Guard,, and most Reunions sites via the periphery of campus throughout the event.
Rovers — student-driven golf carts that serve as a mini transit connection on the core of campus — will operate throughout Reunions, Thursday through Saturday night. Rovers will provide frequent service to the Theater Drive Garage and lot P20, the transit plaza, hotel shuttles, Forbes, and Reunions headquarter sites along Elm Drive and Chapel Drive. Rover carts will be clearly marked. Please feel free to wave down a Rover driver if you need a ride.
TAXIS & RIDE-HAILING SERVICES
To prevent congestion on Elm Drive and other campus roads, all taxis and ride-hailing providers (Uber, Lyft, taxis, etc.) are restricted from entering main campus.
Anyone wishing to use a ride-hailing provider may be picked up or dropped off on Alexander Road immediately adjacent to Princeton Station or along the campus perimeter, preferably locations on this map.
