Asked by Hoban, New York, NY Wed Apr 16, 2008

I am thinking about moving to Westport CT and I know there is a commuter train in Fairfield County but what is the parking like at the station, how much parking is there, how quickly does it fill up, can I get an annual permit, how early do I need to get there to get a space?

Hi Hoban...

yes..there is a wait list for parking permits. You should call town hall at 203-341-1000 speak with the parking enforcement department. Try to register as soon as you have signed your contract OR your lease. If I can be of assistance in finding a place to call home, please call me at 203-682-4327 or email me at

good luck..westport is a fabulous place to live!!!!
