New Haven Line

The Greenwich Metro-North Railroad station serves the residents of Greenwich, Connecticut via the New Haven Line and is the first station on that line in the state of Connecticut. Usually served by Stamford-based local trains, the station also is the first/last stop for many Connecticut Department of Transportation-funded expresses originating at New Haven, Bridgeport, or South Norwalk.

Greenwich is 28.1 miles from Grand Central Terminal and the average travel time from Grand Central is 57 minutes (though expresses run as fast as 38 minutes).

As of August 2006, weekday commuter ridership was 2,804, and there are 1,274 parking spots (none owned by the state, unlike most other railroad stations in Connecticut).[2]
