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, or buses for their trips to work. The Capitol Region includes 45 commuter parking lots across 27 municipalities. CRCOG began conducting biannual capacity counts for the Region’s commuter parking lots in Spring 2017. To view the data collected from these counts, please click here. Maps showing lot locations and depicting Average Spaces Available and Average Percent Full for each lot are also available.
An interactive map of commuter parking lots 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. Additional information about the relationship between commuter parking lots and Express Bus Service can be found on CTtransit’s Express Bus System Map.
