Shore Line East: What's New

Record Ridership on Shore Line East

Governor Dannel P. Malloy today announced that ridership on Shore Line East – the commuter rail line between New Haven and New London – set a new record last month with 63,959 passenger trips.
 
Connecticut Transportation Commissioner James P. Redeker said that the ridership jump in July represented a 5 percent increase over June, in part because of special service that was implemented in July for Sail Fest 2014. Through July 2014, there have been 382,716 rides, compared with 375,524 through July of 2013. Total ridership in 2013 increased by 5 percent compared with 2012.
