New Haven Line commuters are getting an early holiday present today with the opening of the Fairfield Metro Station, situated between the Bridgeport and Fairfield Stations.
Amenities of the new ADA-accessible station include:
- 1,400 parking spaces
-Two full service ticket machines (one machine situated at the bottom of the overpass on each platform).
-Weather friendly full-length canopies on both the inbound and outbound platforms, which also feature benches and fully enclosed platform shelters.
-An enclosed pedestrian overpass for easy passage between platforms; elevators are provided on both platforms. (No more carrying strollers up and over the tracks!)
Every train that is scheduled to stop at Fairfield also will stop at Fairfield Metro, just 3 minutes earlier (sounds like the place to get better seats to Suzy!) and both stations are in the same fare zone. Customers traveling to/from Fairfield Metro Station should use a Fairfield Station ticket until Jan. 2, 2012, at which time Fairfield Metro tickets will become available at ticket machines and ticket offices.
Bus service (provided by Greater Bridgeport Transit) begins at the station in January and taxi service will be available immediately.
