Due to construction at a building next to our passport agency, the agency’s parking lot is restricted to those with handicap placards. On the day of your appointment, we recommend you take public transportation or park in one of several nearby public parking garages.
Arriving by Public Transportation: Taxi and bus services are available at the Stamford Transportation Center (STC). Alternate parking is available at the STC located one-half mile from the passport agency at 30 South State Street (at Washington Blvd).
In addition to public transportation available in downtown Stamford, a free trolley service is available to shuttle the public from municipal garages to local points of interest with stops near the agency. The closest trolley stop the agency is located in front of Fairway Market, located 1 block from the agency.
Arriving by Car: If you must drive to the agency, plan ahead and use one of the public parking garages in Stamford. Under Connecticut state law, you cannot idle, or remain in your car while it is running, outside the passport agency. Applicants may be dropped off in front of either of our two customer entrances: on Canal Street or at the rear of the building. Vehicles displaying valid handicap placards may park in the rear lot behind the building if designated spaces are available.
Please note we have two customer entrances: one is on Canal Street and the other is at the rear of the building.
