East Windsor TO NYC - Day Trip by train

HI Guys,

I have had a look through the forum and just wanted a second opinion.

We are going to be in East Windsor at the end of July to visit Six Flags and we were hoping to grab the train for a day trip to NYC. I have Googled this and the nearest station with parking is Princeton Junction. On the NJ Transit page, when I input the details to the itinerary planner it brings up a train costing $16 each way and takes approx. 1 hour 20 minutes. Is this correct? or have I input it incorrectly, or would you have any other suggestions We are hoping to do this on Sunday 29 July. Thanks for your help.

Without running that scenario myself, I can say that it sounds about right.

FWIW There's a senior discount which may or may not apply to non US citizens and even on a Sunday you will have to pay for parking. Last time I parked at Princeton Junction it was $5.00 US for the first 24 hours.

I don't understand why you're going to East Windsor, which is a 30 minute drive from Six Flags. Where are you coming form and how will you get to East Windsor and then to Six Flags?

If your over-all trip is to NYC, did you know that you can get a bus from NYC direct to Six Flags?

Hi we are staying in Days Inn East Windsor, we have stayed there before and like the location. We don't mind the drive to Six Flags, its through a beautiful part of your country. We are looking to break up the vacation with a day trip to NYC. We have been there before too and are looking for the easiest way to get there.
