Forrestal Campus Shuttle Service

The Forrestal Campus and Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) are currently serviced with a dedicated daily shuttle route linking Forrestal Campus to the main Princeton University campus.

You can avoid roads with a lot of traffic by biking, and it's a pretty ride along the towpath (keep your eyes open for a pair of bald eagles). Don't try to bike along Route 1 -- it's not safe. Mapleton Road does not have street lights so you will need bike lights after dark. Both GFDL and Sayre Hall (AOS) have bike racks and showers.

It is possible to walk to Forrestal Campus from Princeton, but it takes at least an hour to longer depending from where you start and how fast you walk. Follow the bike route directions, but be careful on Mapleton Road where there is no sidewalk or lights.
