New Haven

The Connecticut Department of Transportation has announced a new parking enforcement initiative at the West Haven Train Station.

According to officials, this week, drivers parked in the lot will be reminded that payment is required for parking.

Starting on Monday, May 6th, drivers without a permit or who do not pay the $6 daily parking fee will be subject to a penalty of $25 per day.

“The Department of Transportation will have ambassadors on hand on May 6 and May 7 to assist customers and answer questions,” said Richard W. Andreski, Bureau Chief Public Transportation. “We will be present to both help customers with parking kiosks and to make sure customers remember that enforcement is underway.”

In February, News 8’s Stephanie Simoni learned from the department that around 200 people illegally parked at the lot each day.

Paid parking at the lot will be enforced Monday through Friday between 5:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.

Those who are repeat offenders will be subject to towing after reaching $250 in unpaid parking violations.
