Due to the current limitations of Metro-North train service, the Town of Darien in conjunction with the Darien Police Department will be temporarily suspending parking enforcement and parking fees in commuter parking lots.

On-Street parking regulations will also be relaxed to the degree that public safety is not compromised. Laws pertaining to Fire Lanes, Handicapped Parking, and the blocking of roadways and driveways will be enforced.

Commuters are cautioned against parking in private parking areas. These provisions will remain in place until more information can be obtained regarding the resumption of regular train service.

Currently train service remains suspended between South Norwalk and New Haven due to the train derailment and collision that occurred on May 17th. Commuters are advised to consult Metro North schedules for up-to-date train information.

Commuters are encouraged to arrive at train stations earlier than usual to allow time to find sufficient parking. Larger volumes of pedestrian and vehicular traffic are expected in and around both Darien and Noroton Heights train stations. Motorists are urged to use caution while traveling to or through these areas. Thank you for your patience and cooperation.
