Barnum Station is a planned new commuter rail station to be located along the Metro-North Railroad New Haven line in East Bridgeport, CT. The station will enhance regional access to and from East Bridgeport and support the revitalization of the East Side, Mill Hill and East End neighborhoods. The station will be located on the south side of Barnum Avenue between Seaview Avenue and Pembroke Street on the site of the former Remington Arms factory. The station is named after the circus leader and one-time Bridgeport mayor P. T. Barnum.
The City oversaw the project's environmental review, as well as design up to 15%, with the engineering firm VHB. The project has been handed to CTDOT for completion of design.
