The Danbury station is a commuter rail stop on the Danbury Branch of the Metro-North Railroad's New Haven Line, located in Danbury, Connecticut. The station is the northern terminus of Danbury Branch. Since the Danbury Branch is mostly single-tracked, most service is a shuttle to South Norwalk with three peak-hour runs to Grand Central; service to South Norwalk takes approximately 47 minutes, service to Grand Central 1 hour, 55 minutes. The station is 64.9 miles (104.4 km) to Grand Central; it is adjacent to both the Danbury Railway Museum and the hub for Housatonic Area Regional Transit. The station has 147 parking spaces, all owned by the state.[1]

The present passenger station was built 1996 by ConnDOT and replaces the older New Haven Railroad station, now the Danbury Railway Museum.
