I know you can get to GCT from this line, but do you have to transfer in Norwalk? Or does the train keep going and switch onto the New Haven line once it reaches Norwalk?

You can catch the train out of Brewster's Southeast station, and that goes directly into Grand Central. It would take a little longer though, and is about 15 minutes from the center of Danbury.

You might even consider just driving to South Norwalk, but know that Route 7 can be an issue.

You mean it can have traffic? Or is it dangerous? I am not from around there.

Route 7 is a two lane road with a lot of congestion. It was recently widened in Ridgefield and they're widening it in Wilton. It's worse during rush hour...throw a bunch of stoplights in and it can get pretty bad. They were supposed to build an interstate connecting Danbury to Norwalk but the small towns in between (Wilton, Redding, Ridgefield) successfully fought it off.

I haven't done it but I've heard the transfer in Norwalk from the Danbury line is pretty easy - the other train is right there as soon as you step off.
