The TigerPaWW will also continue to operate with stops at Princeton Junction Station, the Alexander Street northbound bus stop, and the bus stop on College Road across from the McCarter Theatre circle.

On Monday, Nov. 17, Princeton Station will open in its new, permanent location and rail service will resume. Ticket vending machines will be located at the east end of the station on the platform. TigerPaWW service will be discontinued at noon on Nov. 17.

Also, on Monday, Nov. 17, concurrent with the opening of the Transit Plaza, NJ TRANSIT, TigerTransit and FreeB bus service will begin using the bus stop at the new Princeton Station. The bus stop adjacent to the commuter lot on Alexander Street will then be removed.
