Traveling to/from New Haven train stations
Yale shuttles, which are free to members of the Yale community and their guests, are available from Union Station and State Street Station beginning at 7:00 a.m. every day. University ID is not required.
On the day of Commencement, take the red line from Union Station or State Street Station to main campus. Departures from Union Station are every fifteen minutes and from State Street Station, four minutes later.
Drop-off at College and Chapel Streets is most convenient for Commencement guests going to Old Campus. At 10:00 a.m. when the Commencement procession begins and streets are closed, drop-off will be at Chapel and Church Streets.
Return red line shuttles leave from Phelps gate, with pick-up every fifteen minutes.
The City of New Haven also offers a free shuttle Monday-Friday to additional off-site parking locations, including the Temple Street Garage and the parking lot at the former Coliseum site.
