Roads, trains, planes busy as holiday travelers head home

WINDSOR LOCKS - As travelers hit the road, rails and air on Sunday, they had to hurry up and wait.

Bradley International Airport's operations staff say it was a very busy morning at Connecticut's largest airport.

According to AAA, almost a quarter-million New Englanders are flying this Thanksgiving holiday weekend - an increase of 5.5% over last year. That New England increase is bigger than the national growth, and it's as high as it's been in 10 years. Allow extra time to get park and get through security. Remember there are new TSA policies regarding electronic devices.

Union Station in New Haven also saw a large volume of travelers.

Amtrak and other trains and buses were filled to capacity all weekend as people were looking to get home from the holiday weekend.

Several commuters say they expect to experience the high volume of traffic in just a few weeks during Christmas.
