Connecticut Transportation

  • Metro North Railroad

    Greenwich Transportation

    The Metro North Railroad serves Greenwich with fairly decent service. It is both an express stop and also an end of the line stop for many rush hour trains. Like all MNRR trains, there is no middle of the night service but the down time is only about 5 hours.

  • Driving in Connecticut

    As beautiful as Connecticut is, the major highways can frankly be a pain to drive on. Congestion, construction and too many trucks mean that your trip through Connecticut can be a chore. This is especially true on I-95, the major route between New York City and Boston.My suggestion: get off the big highways as much as possible, and get on some of...


    Take the Merrit Parkway if you can. Travelling through Conn. and NY to New Jersey, you have a wonderful ride spring or fall on the Merrit.....and then it will tie you into the Tappanzee Bridge. It's such a civilized drive. Cooler and more beautiful by FAR than the RTe 95 to the George Washington Bridge. I love it when there is no traffic to save...

  • Take the Metro-North to Manhattan

    The Metro-North Commuter train is the best way to get from Connecticut to New York. From the station in New Haven to Manhattan's Grand Central Station, it is an hour and a half ride. Cost is approx. $17 each way.The trains run every hour and go through towns like Milford, Bridgeport, Stamford, Norwalk, etc.....before finally reaching the New York...

  • Off the Interstate

    If you ever plan to go to Connecticut coming from New York or other states further south, don´t take I 95. I 95 is the major interstate highway leading from the Big Apple to New Haven, Ct. But it is much nicer to take the parkway. I don´t remember the exact name of that parkway anymore. But it follows the same directions as I 95. Just a few miles...

  • Singapore airlines and a rental car.

    We flew from Amsterdam to Newark, NJ with singapore airlines. It was the cheapest option. Newark is only a few hours by car from Connecticut.Rent a car! As you can see in cultural tips you are nothing in the USA when you don´t have a car.

    From NYC: Most points can be reached via MetroNorth and then by taking local transportation. Car is the best way - most towns that are not on the Long Island Sound do not interconnect with any public transportation.

  • When traveling in most CT...

    When traveling in most CT towns be aware a lot of towns are still small farm towns. There still may be tractors riding down the road at 15 MPH. It may not smell the best at times :-) Just remember to be respectfull of the small towns when passing through.

  • Public Transportation to the...

    Public Transportation to the smaller places in CT is terrible. You will need to rent a car if you want to travel into the countryside. However, trains to New York City from are great. All the way from New Haven to NYC. Much better than driving and not expensive ($11.50 from New Haven to NYC - not during rush hour). And leave just about every hour....
