Here's a link....perhaps the Hamilton station would work for you? Not sure, because I'm from NY and just happened upon your post. I'm assuming you're somewhere near Trenton, NJ?

What is your definition of "a bit far?" Princeton Junction is less than 5 miles from 295.

Hamilton Station is right off of 295.

Why not just take the River Line to NJ Transit at Trenton?

Hamilton has better parking availability than Princeton Junction. When are you doing this and how long do you need to park at the station?

The Hamilton station is right off exit 65B of 295. Check and repost on the New Jersey fourm as this comes up quite a bit.
