People tend to check in during these times:
If going to nyc take the metro north. Much cheaper than the amtrak
The downstairs dunkin donuts is faster even when the line is longer because it's all commuters. Tourists use the upstairs one.
Come for the trains, stay for the gross incompetence that leads to a two-year long renovation of a 100-foot long hallway!
Go to the left when heading up to board trains. It's less crowded because most people go right.
Cab rides are about $10 to the main campus. You might be able to share a ride with a few Yalies
Be happy if you catch a new train down to Grand Central!
Enjoy the refreshing décor at New Haven Railroad Station. The interior features limestone walls, ornate ceilings, chandeliers and stainless steel ceilings in the tunnels leading up to the trains.
DD coffee on the morning commute
A large secure waiting area with Amtrak and MTA Metro North ticket windows. The station offers two Dunkin Donut stores, a Subway (Sandwiches), and Sbarro. There is a nice newstand with newspapers, m
Try the trains!
don't wait in line at the Dunkin in the lobby... there's another one on the way to the tracks that's usually empty.
If you smoke outside, please sstep away from the doors. Some folks passing by would rather not smoke.
A cool, historic station that feels like a tiny GCT.
Trains to grand central are always the last track..go all the way down the hall on right. Every time.
If you're commuting on the shoreline east, save your receipt and you can buy your metro north ticket on the train for the same price inside the station if you're in a rush, saves you $6
New metro north trains are pretty spiffy looking and have plugs next I every seat! Score!
If you buy your Metro North ticket at the window or on the train, you're an idiot. Ticket Vending Machines are your friend.
The train models on the benches are pretty neat.
If you're on Your way to Boston, make sure to take the Megabus! Its an amazing coach bus that will get You there for $1.50 on week days! Its the deal of a lifetime that will save you hundreds!
they filmed a movie with De Niro here, in the metal tunnel on the way to the train
Pretty old station.
Bring your card or print your reservation code. The Quik-trak machines do not have CCD scanners.
Not much in the way of food. Bring a picnic from home unless u can live on Dunkin Donuts.

Used my iPhone passbook app today and it scanned perfectly on quick track, told me that my boarding pass was fine. Then it scanned for the conductor checking tickets. Such a hassle-free way to travel!
They're finally done "renovating" half the tunnel!
Don't take metro taxi. They're awful.
Save up to 25% on Northeast Regional just for booking 2 weeks early!
Take the early train into work.
Watch out. The only ATM has a 2.95 fee! That's more than most places in NYC!
If you are looking for the megabus it pulls up right in front of the station NOT where the other buses pull up. Also important. Sometimes megabus uses "Dattco" buses
We have party train every friday on the 427 shoreline east! Beer n apps! Stop in to the last car if ur around!
Dunkin Donuts has free WiFi!
Get in early and find a seat in the first car exiting the city. It will be the first car entering NYC. Helps to avoid the crush of humanity as you try and make your appointment in the Big Apple.
Blue line shuttle brings passengers to Yale-New Haven Hospital; red line goes to Yale University.
The last off-peak train to NYC is at 11:38 pm. Don't miss it or you are screwed.
The bathrooms are nasty, often out of soap or toilet paper
During the winter months, stay upstairs in the station instead of waiting out near the track until a couple minutes before your train is expected. It's warmer and not as crowded!
Nothing like a DD hot chocolate during the winter -- first thing I do coming off the MTA
If ride in on the Shoreline East & are switching to the Metro North to New York, hold onto your Shoreline East Receipt-it allows you to pay cash on the Metro North train w/o having to pay the penalty
Plenty of parking adjacent to station.
Both tunnels now open! Just in time for the holiday crunch.
Women's room doesn't have trash disposals in the stalls. That means you have to toss out any feminine hygiene products used in the trash in front of everyone. Awesome.
They have two Zipcars here...both blue Ford Focuses. One's a sedan and the other is a five door hatch!
The Sbarro are just too damn slow
Is it that difficult to put some signage in the hallway? Walking all the way back to the station to find out what track my next train is on is absurd!
Save a lot of minutes and get dropped off quickly in the bus area -- beats playing "avoid the taxis"
The donkin donut downstairs is closed for weekends.
Get the tunnel fixed!
