The Hartford Line, also known as the New Haven-Hartford-Springfield (NHHS) Rail Program, is scheduled to launch in late 2016. The enhanced rail service between New Haven and Springfield, with portions of the line from New Haven to Windsor, will be double tracked, and will provide faster, frequent and more reliable passenger service both locally and regionally.

Amtrak (
The best way to experience all that Connecticut has to offer is on Amtrak. You can explore the beauty and magic of the seaport towns such as Old Saybrook, New London and Mystic or the historical and cultural offerings of big cities such as New Haven and Hartford - all without ever getting in your car. With service to 13 cities and towns in Connecticut and easy connections to other public transportation options, Amtrak can take you where you want to go in safer, greener and healthier ways. All Aboard and Enjoy the Journey!



There are 50 rail stations in Connecticut. Please visit the ConnDOT Interactive Travel Information Map and select "train stations" for locations and more information.



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.

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.
