3 College Junior

Transportation: there are loop bus and public bus but they only come few times a day. train is very expensive especially when you try to go to new york city :(

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: The campus shuttle runs about four days a week with multiple times. The major problem is that the bus has a limited amount of seats so students do not always make the bus. Public transportation is the NJ Transit bus which frequently visits campus and always has seats available.

College Junior

Transportation: I am a commuter so I have my car on campus anyway.

3 College Junior

Transportation: I tend to walk to where ever I need to go. The shuttle is open for the public to use so you might get some strange locals on the ride to where ever you are going.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: Their is a local bus that drops and picks people up. The train station is not too far, however you need to find a ride their.

TCNJ's transportation accommodations are, relative to other schools in the state, rather sparse. This is largely due to the demographic of students and the small size of the College. There is the NJ Transit Mercer bus service that stops at the TCNJ Brower Student Center and takes students as far as the Trenton rail station.

TCNJ's proximity to both the Trenton and Hamilton rail stations expands students' transit options to both Philadelphia and New York City. TCNJ is also situated between Newark International and Philadelphia International airports.
