Exploring New Haven by foot is enjoyable, particularly in the
area surrounding the university. Various walking tours start from
the Yale Visitor Center. The downtown area is serviced by a free
electric trolley system, operating Monday to Saturday, and
departing every 15 minutes or so between late morning and early
evening. CTTRANSIT bus service is also available and the network
covers most of the city. New Haven has been working to make parking
more convenient and there are various off-street lots and garages.
A Parcxmart card can be used to pay for metered on-street parking
and is very useful for anybody hiring a car to get around New Haven
and surrounding areas.
