Black Rock CT Transportation


Fairfeld Metro Station

Wherever you need to go, you can get there from Black Rock. Easy access to I-95 and the Merritt Parkway puts all of Connecticut’s towns and cities within reach. Hartford, the state capital, is just 51 miles away. And if you’re travelling out of state, you have plenty of options:

  •   By Rail: The Metro-North Railroad will take you to New York City’s Grand Central Terminal, about 50 miles from Black Rock. There are three train stations in Fairfield, including a new one on the Black Rock/Fairfield line called the Fairfield Metro Station Amtrak serves the entire Northeast Corridor from Boston to Washington, D.C., with stops in nearby Bridgeport.
  • By Air: Black Rock is just 60 miles from Bradley International, less than 50 from JFK and LaGuardia and about 20 minutes from Sikorsky Memorial Airport. Don’t feel like driving there yourself? Connecticut Limo’s Bridgeport terminal is just minutes away from Fairfield Center or get picked up at your door by Redgate Town Car service 203-259-0550.
  • By Ferry: It’s only a ten minute ride to the Bridgeport terminal of the Port Jefferson ferry serving Long Island.  Drive, walk or ride your bicycle aboard one of three ferries.  Sit back, relax and enjoy the view.  Experience today the simplicity and comfort of travel.  Listen to the sounds of the waves as you enjoy a meal from the Snack Bar or, if you choose, have a cocktail in the Steamboat Lounge as the Ferry cruises across the Sound.  Make reservations ahead of time if you plan to board with your car.
 Within Connecticut, Metro-North serves more than a dozen shoreline communities from Greenwich to New Haven, with connections to Waterbury, Danbury, and Shoreline East


One Mile Radius Around New Fairfield Metro Train Station




The new train station on the Fairfield/Black Rock border opened on December 5, 2011. The station has 1,400 parking spaces and has express trains for Grand Central Station and Stamford. A feasibility study is underway for a pedestrian bridge from Fox Street to the new train station, which would provide easy access for Black Rock residents. Eventually there will a hotel/retail/office complex called Fairfield Metro on the site.  Original plans called for a Hilton Hotel and upscale retail stores.  Most of Black Rock is located within a one mile radius of the new train station.
