Despite Dinky ridership dip, Princeton transit use up 15%

Posted on January 17, 2014

PRINCETON, N.J. — Ridership on public transportation provided by Princeton University increased by more than 15% in September and October compared to last year, according to The Daily Princetonian.

However, NJ Transit Senior Public Information Officer William Smith said in the story that Dinky train ridership between Princeton and Princeton Junction went down by 12.3%.

Martin Mbugua, university spokesperson, Princeton University, told the paper that the total number of commutes now includes the 16,922 rides provided by the university’s TigerPAWW shuttle bus system.

While the reason for the ridership spike is not clear, it may be attributed to drivers who want to avoid parking at Princeton Junction, Kristin Appelget, director of community and regional affairs, Princeton University, told the Daily Princetonian. For the full story, click here.
