MADISON, Conn. (WTNH) — Now beachgoers can leave their cars at the park and ride—take the shuttle down to Hammonasset. Local KerriAnne Moore thinks it’s a good idea to get folks out into the surf and sand faster.
“You can see it behind me, here’s the bus, here’s the trolley, the new park connect program trying to make it easy for everyone to get to the beach free,” said Moore.
Said Governor Ned Lamont, “it’ll ease the flow of traffic outside the park, making it easier for folks to access our parks.”
The state is unveiling the program on the eve of Memorial Day weekend. With social distancing and capacity limits lifted—now residents can just take the New Haven line to Milford and the Silver Sands shuttle will pick them up.
The park connect program lasts through Labor Day.
