Getting to New Haven
By Air: If you are flying to Hartford, Newark, LaGuardia, or JFK, you can take the Connecticut Limo into New Haven. To reserve, please visit http://www.ctlimo.com/ or call them at 1-800-472-LIMO. If you are coming to New Haven Tweed Airport, a taxi will take you straight to Yale campus for around $10.
By Train: If you are taking a train into Union Station, you can hop on a bus to get to Downtown New Haven. The J bus runs regularly back and forth from the station to Downtown (the New Haven Green), and costs only $1. For bus schedules, see http://www.cttransit.com/content/routesNewHaven.asp. You can also take a taxi. [back to top]
If you are staying at one of the hotels in Downtown New Haven, you’ll want to keep your car parked in their parking lots.
Otherwise, on Saturdays, there is free parking on Chapel Street (from College to Park) on both sides of the road.
You can also purchase 12 hour parking vouchers from the New Haven Free Public Library (on the corner of Temple and Elm) or Atticus Books (on the corner of Chapel and High) among other places. These vouchers will allow you to park in the street anywhere where there is a 12-hour limit (the right side of Grove St from College to the Payne Whitney Gym or the left side of Park St in the block between Elm and Edgewood).
Or you can park in any paid parking lot or garage: prices range from $6-12 for all day. To see a map of lots and garages, please go to http://www.cityofnewhaven.com/govt/gov45.htm [back to top]
