State Prepares for Mid-2018 Launch of the Hartford Line, Offering Frequent Rail Service Between New Haven, Hartford, and Springfield

Governor Dannel P. Malloy today joined Connecticut Department of Transportation (CTDOT) Commissioner James P. Redeker and numerous federal, state, and local officials to celebrate the grand opening of the newly constructed train station in Wallingford. Located at 343 North Cherry Street, the station will immediately begin providing service to existing Amtrak trains and soon will begin serving trains on the CTrail Hartford Line, the passenger rail service currently under construction and scheduled to launch in the middle of next year that will provide commuters with more frequent train service between New Haven, Hartford, and Springfield.
“We are getting closer each day to launching a commuter rail line between New Haven, Hartford, and our friends in Springfield, and today’s opening of the new station in Wallingford marks a major milestone in the evolution of the much-needed service,” Governor Malloy said. “Creation of the Hartford Line will provide those working, living, and traveling along this corridor with fast, safe, and reliable rail transportation – providing greater attraction for businesses, stimulating job creation, and improving our overall quality of life.”
The new Wallingford station, which replaces an outdated station nearby, is the first of several new stations being constructed along the Hartford Line that has opened for service. Stations that will immediately begin serving the line when it opens next year are located in New Haven (Union Station and State Street), Wallingford, Meriden, Berlin, Hartford, Windsor, Windsor Locks and Springfield. Additional new stations are currently in the design process for locations in North Haven, Newington, West Hartford, and Enfield.

This work is part of the overall upgrade of the New Haven-Hartford-Springfield passenger rail line – now branded as the CTrail Hartford Line – scheduled to begin expanded service in May 2018.
