WHERE TO PARK

Parking at CTfastrak station

We're expanding! Parking capacity along the CTfastrak corridor will be expanded by 142 percent in 2016 – for a total of 429 spaces versus 177 today. More information

Update (11/3/16) -- The empty lot next to the Cedar Street Station is the former location of the National Welding Company. The lot is owned by the town of Newington and the Connecticut Dept. of Transportation is working with the town on plans for a parking lot. Review of this plan needs approval by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

The Farmington Park & Ride at Colt Highway and South Road near UConn Health requires additional drainage permits. Completion of this lot is scheduled for the end of 2017. 
 
At this time, options to lease parking spaces with nearby businesses are also being considered as well.

Now -- You can leave your car in the driveway and walk, ride your bike or take a circulator or local bus to your CTfastrak station, or you could get dropped off at the convenient kiss-and-ride area.

If you live in Bristol, Plainville, Southington, Cheshire, Waterbury, Manchester, or other points beyond the end of the CTfastrak bus-only roadway in New Britain, you can pick up CTfastrak buses or CTtransit Express buses in those communities without driving to New Britain. Free park and ride lots are available for express bus routes in Bristol, Southington, Cheshire, Waterbury, and Manchester. Limited parking is available at some CTfastrak stations (available on first-come-first-served basis). All parking at CTfastrak stations is free of charge.

Reduced parking rates are available in the Szczesny Municipal Parking Garage located at 35 Bank Street which is adjacent to the Downtown New Britain Station. Parking rates for CTfastrak and CTtransit riders are $3/day. Just show your valid CTtransit or CTfastrak ticket or pass to the garage attendant when you leave the Szczesny Garage. Monthly parking is also available for only $40 through the City of New Britain. Weekend parking at Szczesny Garage is always free.
