Waterbury Rail Line Improvement Program

The State of Connecticut has invested $90 million in track and signal upgrades, serving as the prerequisite for expanded rail line service and the concurrent running of trains.

Now, local officials are proposing additional components – including new train cars and additional service infrastructure – to increase ridership and establish regular train schedules.



Waterbury Train Station Improvements

Operated by Metro North, the rail passenger service features daily round trips between Waterbury and New York City – making it attractive for citizens to live in one city and work in the other.

Currently, more than 1,100 people commute from Waterbury to lower Fairfield County and Manhattan daily. 

A highly-anticipated revitalization of the train station parking lot – located next to the famous clock tower building owned by the local newspaper – is underway, with parking lot and lighting improvements that make entering and exiting the station more comfortable.
