    Whether you’re commuting daily or just craving a quick city fix, you’ll love how easy it is to get to New York City from your apartment.

    The station is an easy 11-minute walk straight out Vela's front door — just head down Washington Boulevard to the Stamford Amtrak/Metro North station, and the train will have you at Manhattan's Grand Central in about an hour.

    If the weather is frightful or you're short on time, we also offer free daily shuttle rides to the train.

    Trains into the city run every 15 minutes daily, giving you plenty of opportunities to hop on board (see the schedule here). Not feeling up for the walk? The station offers both same-day and overnight parking, and you can reserve your spot in advance. And be sure to download the TrainTime app, which allows you to buy tickets in advance and gives you access to schedules, GPS train tracking, real-time seat availability, and more.
