FARE OPTIONS

UniTicket
UniTicket combines monthly bus and rail fare into one deeply-discounted monthly ticket. No need to purchase two separate monthly passes. It's a good reason to leave the car at home. No more worrying about parking at the station! On the bus, it means no more fumbling for change. It is good for unlimited monthly rides on CTTRANSIT, Milford, Norwalk, Danbury and Bridgeport transit systems before and after your train trip. Your UniTicket may be purchased at any Metro-North ticket office or through Mail & Ride, Metro-North's ticket-by-mail program.

To find out how to convert your Mail & Ride monthly rail ticket to a UniTicket, call (212) 340-2020. To get more information about the UniTicket, call Metro-North at (800) METRO-INFO; in New York City (212) 532-4900.

UniRail
Commute on Shore Line East past New Haven? Save $48* a month. If you live east of New Haven and work west of New Haven, it makes even more sense than ever to commute by train. The combination Shore Line East/Metro-North Uni-Rail Ticket saves you $48 a month*. And, with no traffic, weather, car or parking problems and expenses, it's a great transportation bargain. (* $44 from Branford)

Uni-Rail tickets are available at New Haven's Union Station, at any New Haven Line ticket window, and through Metro-North's Mail & Ride program. For further information on the Mail & Ride program, contact Metro-North at (800) 638-7646.
