Train Schedules to Princeton Record Exchange, NJ from Philadelphia

Loading

In an effort to help the hundreds of music and movie lovers that visit Princeton Record Exchange from Philadelphia, we've composed this page of train service information.

Train Service Information:

Trains generally run every 30 to 60 minutes on weekdays, and hourly on weekends and weeknights.

  • Click on NJ Transit or call 973-275-5555 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Eastern Time Zone
  • Click on SEPTA or call 215-580-7800
  • Click on Amtrak or call 800-872-7245

When traveling by Train to/from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania:

Most of our customers from Philadelphia take a SEPTA train to Trenton, transfer to a NJ Transit train to Princeton Junction (one town over from us), and then use the shuttle train into Princeton. The total trip, including transfers, takes about 90 minutes. Click on the SEPTA website and find schedule from Penn Station (the main station at 30th street) or another train station.

There are a few Amtrak trains that will take you directly to Princeton Junction, but most will only take you as close as Trenton and they are all much more expensive. The SEPTA trains that go to Trenton are slower, but they are much cheaper and run much more frequently. From the Trenton Station, transfer to a NJ Transit train on the Northeast Corridor Line towards New York, and get off at Princeton Junction. 

Alternatively, you make take a taxi from Trenton to Princeton Record Exchange for about $50.

From Princeton Junction you have a few options to get to our store.

  • You may take a smaller shuttle train (called "the dinky") to Princeton's local train station. This shuttle train meets the incoming trains from NYC and takes about 5 minutes. 
  • From the local Princeton station, take a 8 minute walk (Map and step by step directions below), or a short taxi ride (for around $8) to our store.
  • Alternatively, you may take a taxi directly from Princeton Junction (for around $15).

Amtrak

Amtrak provides the fastest service to Princeton Junction and doesn't require transfers. But because their trains are infrequent and significantly more expensive, we recommend using NJ Transit, Northeast Corridor Line.  Please see links below.
