Parking - Yale Medical School Campus

Applicants driving to New Haven should park in the Air-Rights Garage located at 60 York Street.  When you arrive please ask the residency program coordinator for a yellow validation ticket or "chaser" ticket to pay for your parking for the day.  We are only able to cover the cost of parking for those applicants who park in the Air-Rights Garage.

Attached is a PDF map of all the entrances and exits to the Air-Rights Garage.

NOW OPEN (10/14/2015):  The new Air-Rights Garage Service Driveways allow direct access into and out of the Air-Rights Garage via the Route 34 Expressway, which directly connects to I-91 & I-95.  The Service Driveways can be used by Air-Rights Garage parkers (i.e. Yale-New Haven Hospital visitors, patients, faculty, residents, staff).

The current entrance on Martin Luther King Blvd. into the garage will remain open. If traffic prohibits vehicles from getting over to the left hand exit on the service drive they will be able to use the existing entrance into the Air-Rights Garage.  All other entrances on S. Frontage and York Street will remain open as well.

There is NO local street access from these Service Driveways.

Other Travel Tips

There are many methods of traveling to New Haven after arriving at a New York City airport. One option is to take the New York Airport Service Shuttle to Grand Central Station. From Grand Central Station, connect to the Metro North Railroad which will take you to the New Haven station. Caution: when viewing schedules on the Metro North website, make sure you choose New Haven as your destination NOT New Haven-State Street.

Connecticut Limo, 1-800-472-LIMO, also provides shuttle services from New York Airports to New Haven. Connecticut Limo is the preferred method of travel.

Alternatively, you may take a shuttle from a New York airport to Penn Station and connect to an Amtrak train. Amtrak trains are more expensive than the Metro Rail.
