We arrived in Bridgeport on the ferry from Long Island.Being without a car we looked for a taxi but were kindly offered a lift by a car park mini bus driver who went out of his way to drop us off at the Holiday Inn.
The hotel is located in a downtown area but we found a couple of good restaurants within walking distance and received very good service in the hotel,including complementary free breakfast [Holiday INN priority club] and friendly staff.For a day out,we took a taxi to a good,local beach and a bus back to the hotel. We were close to the Railroad station and took the train back to NYC without a problem. I was really impressed by the train and bus services in the area[cheap,clean and on time] Hopefully this may encourage others to use public transport-it really can be done.
