Shore Line East FAQ - Bus Connections


What do I do if my destination in New Haven is not within walking distance of the train station?

WEEKDAYS
On weekdays, Commuter Connection shuttle buses provide access to locations that are not within walking distance of the New Haven's State Street Station and Union Station.

Weekday mornings, Commuter Connection buses wait in front of State Street Station. A few minutes after each train arrives, the buses depart and loop through downtown New Haven.

Weekday evenings, buses begin their loops approximately 20 minutes before SLE departure times and arrive at Union Station about 5 minutes before SLE departures.
