Talamadge Hill is the closest to a Park & Ride Station on the New Canaan Branch in a neighborhood of trees and rolling hills. The station has a four car long side platform for the single-track, electrified branch line that begins at the edge of a narrow bridge over the Merritt Parkway (with a sign for Metro-North) and runs south ending just before the grade-crossing of Talamadge Hill Road. The simple island platform has silver blocky railings, with two staircases and ramp down to the main parking lot just beneath it. Waiting passengers have their choice of two narrow black with white domed roof shelters at each end of the platform or a slightly larger black one or grey one in the middle of the platform. Additional parking is additional parking lots across the grade-crossing from the station on each side of Talamadge Hill Road.
