guide to

Trenton

Trenton is in Mercer County, and is the capital of New Jersey. The city's strategic location in between New York City and Philadelphia has historically contributed to its growth and significantly impacts local culture. Located on the Delaware River across from Pennsylvania, Trenton is the only accessible capital city in the United States to border another state.

Arriving

By bus

There is an extensive bus network from neighboring cities, some run by SEPTA and others by NJ transit

By train

Trenton is along the Northeast Corridor rail line, accessible to most of the Northeast's major cities. Amtrak, New Jersey Transit, and SEPTA all stop at the Trenton Amtrak Station (72 S. Clinton Avenue). If you are traveling from New York City or Philadelphia, taking NJ Transit or SEPTA respectively will be much cheaper than Amtrak. An alternate which is right in the vicinity is the West Trenton Station, where SEPTA's West Trenton Line terminates.

By car

U.S. Highway 1 is the only major highway that runs through the city; however, I-95 runs nearby and offers easy access to Trenton along US 1. NJ Route 129 connects US 1 in the city with the New Jersey Turnpike, I-295, and I-195. Route 29, a National Scenic Byway, begins south of Trenton and runs parallel to the Delaware River, northwest to Frenchtown.
