Princeton's Neighborhood Bus Service - freeB
Princeton residents and visitors have even more transportation choices.
The Princetons freeB Task Force continues to fine-tune the freeB bus service.
In June, the bus service which circulates throughout Princeton, was expanded to provide service from three days a week to six days a week and added two extra trips. Since then the daily ridership has more then doubled. The new service was monitored closely and it became apparent that an increased number of buses were arriving late. To improve the ontime performance, the Princeton freeB task force approved adding extra time to the schedule to assure service reliability.
Highlights of the Neighborhood Bus service include:
- freeB service is available six days a week (Monday Saturday), and
- freeB provides continuous service throughout the midday.
The Commuter freeB bus route that provides service to and from the Princeton Rail station now serves the Princeton Shopping Center. The new route will travel from Bayard, across Paul Robeson Place/Wiggins Street/Hamilton Avenue to Harrison Street. From Hamilton Street and Harrison Street, the bus will turn left and will proceed to the Princeton Shopping Center. The bus will then travel back down Harrison Street to Nassau Street where it will turn right, providing service along the way before going to the Princeton Rail station. Other recent service changes for the Commuter freeB include:
- A new Park and Ride Location. Commuters can now drive and park their car in the spaces on the south side of the shopping center. Commuter parking is not allowed where there are Customer Parking Only signs.
- A second freeB bus stop has been added at the turn-out past Rite Aid on the Harrison side of Princeton Shopping Center.
Both freeB bus services are free and available for anyone to ride.
Both of the freeB routes and schedules are on Greater Mercer TMAs website at www.gmtma.org or call the Commuter Services Manager for information at (609) 452-1491.
