Where to Park

You can leave your car in the driveway and walk, ride your bike, or take a local bus to your CTfastrak station, or you could get dropped off at the convenient "kiss-and-ride" area. All parking (available on a first-come-first served basis) at CTfastrak stations is free of charge.

Reduced parking rates are available in the Szczesny Municipal Parking Garage located at 35 Bank Street, which is adjacent to the Downtown New Britain Station. Parking rate for CTfastrak and CTtransit riders is $3/day. Just show your valid CTtransit or CTfastrak ticket or pass to the garage attendant when you leave the Szczesny Garage. Monthly parking is also available for only $40 through the City of New Britain. Weekend parking at Szczesny Garage is always free. 

The tables below list available parking at CTfastrak stations or Park & Ride lots.

Important Note: CTfastrak parking is not available at UConn Health, Westfarms Mall, Manchester Community College, Stop & Shop or other private properties.
