Getting Around Connecticut

Connecticut is located at the heart of the Northeast region, halfway between New York City and Boston. And as the southernmost New England state, we are an easy drive from the larger Northeast cities. If you travel by car, Connecticut has interstates running along the shore (I-95) and through the central part of the state (I-91 and I-84).  Traveling by train or bus is also a convenient and affordable way to get to major destinations.  There are a variety of express and local buses, complimentary shuttles, and local on-demand services to meet every need. 

Connecticut has one of the most extensive rail systems in New England, with rail lines running along the shoreline in conjunction with intercity rail and a new service paralleling the central I-91 Corridor through Hartford.  All trains make easy connections to New York destinations, Boston, and beyond. There are also ferries from Long Island to our ports. And international airports in Hartford, Providence, New York, and Boston make it easy to visit.
