Getting around in New Haven, CT

New Haven is connected to New York City by regional rail, commuter rail and intercity rail, travel services which are provided by Metro-North Railroad (commuter rail) and Amtrak (intercity and regional rail), the city's main rail roads station being the historic beaux-arts Union Station, which provides access to New York and New England, an additional station being also available - State Street Station - which provides easy access to and from downtown New Haven.


The bus service is offered by the New Haven Division of Connecticut Transit (CT Transit), being the 2nd largest bus system in the city, having 24 routes, all of them running from the New Haven Green, making it the central transfer hub in the city. The Union Station Shuttle offers free service from Union Station to New Haven Green, including to a few of New Haven's garages, also providing downtown connections, along with the Peter Pan and Greyhound bus lines, which have scheduled stops at Union Station.


Driving is also considered to be a great way to get around in New Haven, but it is a convenient option only if you're not on a budget, during your stay in the city. However, you might want to reconsider getting behind the wheel, during rush hour, due to the fact that the heavy traffic can get very stressful and it can ruin your day. Be sure to avoid driving on I-95, if you plan to explore the nearby surroundings, because it is known for its traffic jams, in proximity to New York City, and it would be a great idea to garb a local map first - just in case!
