East Bridgeport Development Corridor  

East Bridgeport Development Corridor

MetroCog is working with the city of Bridgeport to determine the feasibility of constructing a rail station to serve the East Bridgeport Development Corridor.

The new station would provide improved access to mass transit in an underserved area, connect workers to jobs throughout the region, bolster commuter rail usage, and reduce traffic congestion on I-95.

The new station aims to:

  • Serve more Connecticut and regional rail customers
  • Provide a second rail connection between Bridgeport, Connecticut’s largest city, and the region
  • Increase availability of affordable housing in transit-supportive locations;
  • Decrease per-capita vehicle miles travelled (VMT) and transportation-related emissions for the corridor; and
  • Increase local resident and other stake-holder participation.
