Princeton University’s TigerTransit shuttle system operates on a fixed route schedule, providing safe, convenient and reliable transportation throughout the Princeton campus and surrounding community. There are TigerTransit stops located at most major academic and administrative buildings and housing facilities, and the system is free and open to the public.
The University community can request On-Demand service right from the TransLoc app during On-Demand hours, 10pm-3am while school is in session during the fall and spring semesters. After creating an account, users can select a pick-up and drop-off location (based on their current location, or from a drop-down menu) and an On-Demand bus will be dispatched. The app provides notifications confirming receipt of the request and also when the bus has arrived at the pick-up location.
