2 New Jersey Stations Get Additional Amtrak Service

August 27, 2019

Amtrak has added addition station stops in New Jersey for Northeast Corridor trains.

New Brunswick and Princeton Junction have gained weekday service.

New Brunswick is now served by four southbound and two northbound trains while Princeton Junction now has five southbound and two northbound trains.

Most of the trains involved serve both stations and all but one are Northeast Regional trains.

Southbound train No. 111 will stop at New Brunswick at 5:55 a.m. and Princeton Junction at 6:18 a.m..

No. 89, the Palmetto, stops at New Brunswick at 6:31 a.m. and Princeton Junction at 6:45 a.m.

No. 171 stops at New Brunswick at 1:20 p.m. and Princeton Junction at 1:35 p.m.

No. 177 stops at New Brunswick at 10:46 p.m. and Princeton Junction at 11:01 p.m.

Princeton Junction is also served by train No. 193, which stops at Princeton Junction at 6:13 p.m.

Northbound, both stations will be served by train No. 148, which stops in Princeton Junction at 7:35 p.m. and New Brunswick at 7:49 p.m.

No. 138 will stop in Princeton Junction at 8:35 p.m. and New Brunswick at 8:49 p.m.

Both stations have extensive service by NJ Transit, but the Amtrak service can cut travel times to and from New York by more than a half-hour compared to the commuter railroad.
