Guilford is a passenger rail station along the Shore Line East commuter railroad between Stamford and New London, Connecticut. Guilford is also a station on the northern section of the Northeast Corridor. Amtrak does not stop at this station but Amtrak trains can often be seen passing this station. The current station, with ADA-compliant high-level side platforms, opened on November 28, 2005, replacing an earlier nearby station with low-level platforms.
Ridership increases have rendered the parking lot at Guilford insufficient. There is a plan to add 90 spaces on the opposite side of the tracks in 2009.
