Meriden is centrally located midway between Hartford and New Haven and less than two hours from Boston and New York City. Major highways include I-91, I-691 and the Merritt Parkway.
Commuter rail service to Hartford and New Haven is scheduled to begin in 2016. The new commuter rail service is expected to spur significant “transit oriented development” in the city center. New development will take advantage of Meriden’s central location and proximity to major employment centers. Once the rail service is operational, nearly 140,000 workers located within one mile of a rail station will be able to commute to Meriden within a 40-minute ride.
Meriden is also home to Meriden-Markham Municipal Airport which provides both freight and limited passenger service.
