Commuters who want to avoid traffic congestion and save on commuting costs can leave their cars in commuter parking lots, commonly called park and ride lots, while they use carpools, vanpools, buses, or trains for their trips to work. The Capitol Region includes 45 commuter parking lots across 27 municipalities. A PDF map of these locations is available here. An interactive map of commuter parking throughout the state is available through the Connecticut Department of Transportation at https://cttravelsmart.org/. The CT Travel Smart site also includes information about lighting, shelters, and bus service that is available at each lot.
CRCOG began conducting biannual capacity counts for the Region’s commuter parking lots in Spring 2017. This data will be made available on this page as soon as the Fall 2017 counts have been completed.
