City and state officials agree on New Haven rail station deal
Connecticut transportation officials and the city of New Haven have launched a partnership over the management of the city’s rail stations.
The New Haven Union Station partnership establishes a new 35-year lease and funding agreement, with two 10-year extension options that would allow the city to maintain and improve Union Station.
Plans include a makeover of the station’s first two floors to allow for retail and other amenities for commuters. Also, it would expand parking with a 600-space garage.
This partnership was announced last year during the centennial celebration of the historic New Haven Union Station.
