How To Join


The CT Metro-North / Shore Line East Rail Commuter Council



The Commuter Council’s members are all unpaid volunteer commuters, appointed by various members of the Legislature to two to three year terms.


To join our group you must be:


1)                 A commuter on Metro-North or Shore Line East who resides in CT.


2)                 Willing to attend monthly meetings (except for July & August), usually in the evenings, in towns along the railroads.


3)                 Be willing to work on various subcommittees, bringing your time and talents to the task.


4)                 Get yourself appointed by one of the lawmakers (click here for the list), subject to confirmation hearings in Hartford.


As a first step, please join us at one of our upcoming meetings (see agenda) and see the Council in action.  Or read through our Minutes and see what we’ve done recently on behalf of commuters.


Or contact one of our members for more information.
