WETHERSFIELD, Conn. (AP) _ Connecticut’s Department of Transportation is trying to help rail commuters find a place to park their cars.

Under a new DOT initiative, commuters who are interested in buying available parking permits for the Bridgeport or Fairfield Metro stations may contact CTrides to learn more about parking options and pricing.

DOT officials say many riders along the New Haven Line may be unaware there are up to 500 parking spaces available at both the Bridgeport and Fairfield Metro railroad stations. There are currently waiting lists for commuter parking at most of the other rail stations.

Customer service staff at CTrides will help commuters begin the process of obtaining parking permits for those two stations. They can be reached by phone or via the internet.
