Did you know that an average 7,030 people board NJ Transit trains at the Princeton Junction station every single weekday? As you may already know, the wait list for a parking permit is the stuff of legends – it’s up to eight years long now.
But we at GMTMA know a secret. We can help you get a parking permit today. Yes, today.
If you apply for a rideshare parking permit, there is absolutely no waiting list. That means if you drive to the station with two or more people in your vehicle, you can get a rideshare permit immediately. At least two people must be in the car every time you park using a rideshare permit, but that’s the only restriction.
With a rideshare permit, you can park in the Wallace Road daily parking lot on the New York-bound side of the tracks. It’s really close! These designated rideshare spaces are reserved for the exclusive use of rideshare permit holders from 6:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. on weekdays. After 10:00 a.m., unused rideshare spaces are open to the public for daily parking.
Ridesharing will not only get you a parking permit today and a REALLY close reserved parking space, it will also save you money and decrease carbon emissions. If you rideshare or carpool with one other person you will both save 50% on the cost of gas and car maintenance and there will be one less car on the road creating air pollution.
