STC Master Plan Concept

The Connecticut Department of Transportation is pleased to share the Stamford Transportation Center (STC) and Station Place concept. On this page you will find renderings of the concept and associated descriptions. Feedback from stakeholders, including that received as part of the public involvement process, has contributed to the concept.

Station Place

The Station Place concept creates a well-organized roadway and an engaging public plaza that functions as an entrance to Stamford for those individuals connecting to vehicle pickup. A safer and more welcoming pedestrian and bicycle environment is also created through dedicated bike lanes and covered bike parking.

This image shows the exterior of the STC in the center with a vaulted (rounded) roof with Station Place to the right, separated by a pedestrian plaza with direct access down to the Tunnel level for those individuals connecting to other modes of transportation. In addition to the direct pedestrian access to the Tunnel level from Station Place, there are also lanes for shuttles that serve the south side of Stamford to pick up and drop off on the Tunnel level through wider sidewalks, dedicated bike lanes and covered bike parking. A new TOD replaces the original section of the Station Place parking garage.

On the far left is the newly constructed station parking garage. Traffic is one-way on Station Place to the west to Washington Blvd., and continues to be one-way east on South State St. to Atlantic St. North State St. also continues to be one-way west towards Washington Blvd.
