Transportation & Geography

The City of Waterbury has direct access to both Route 8 and Interstate 84. The City is 21 miles north of New Haven, 29 miles southwest of Hartford, and 24 miles east of Danbury.

Waterbury is home to natural resources such as the Naugatuck River and the Waterbury Greenway. The Greenway will run adjacent to the river and is currently under development. Waterbury is located 30 miles away from deep-water ports in New Haven and Bridgeport.

The City houses a Train Station (both passenger & freight) and a Transportation Station that houses commercial buses (such as Peter Pan or Greyhound buses). A project was just completed that revitalized the City’s Train Station, adding in new bus shelters, parking, and beautifying the layout.

The City is located 45 miles away from Bradley International Airport, New England’s second largest airport, and 15 miles away from the Waterbury-Oxford Airport.

The City of Waterbury is home to Post University, Naugatuck Valley Community College, and the UCONN Waterbury campus.
