The Bethel Metro-North Railroad station serves residents of Bethel, Connecticut via the Danbury Branch of the New Haven Line. The station is 62.2 miles to Grand Central Terminal and the average travel time between the two stations is 1 hour, 52 minutes regardless of through trains or transfers at Stamford or South Norwalk.

Commuters make up the vast majority of riders using the station. The Connecticut Rail Commuter Council is a board created by the state to represent commuter's interests before Metro North and state officials.[1]

The station has 197 parking spaces, all owned by the state.[2] The current station on Durant Avenue was built in 1996 and supersedes the previous station on Depot Place that had been used from 1899 to 1996. The old station is still standing, but trains no longer stop at it.
