Commuters do switch to the SLE express runs @ Stamford as it is so I don't see why you wouldn't be allowed onboard to only New Haven as long as you have a ticket (i.e. GCT to NHV). West of NHV it's really a Metro-North run with MNR personnel. East of there it's strictly SLE with Amtrak crews. Either way it's a CDOT train.
Shore Line East Connecting Passengers
Passengers who transfer from a Metro North train to Shore Line East may purchase combined tickets from Metro North ticket machines and ticket windows before boarding the train.

If you live east of New Haven and work west of New Haven, it makes even more sense than ever to commute by train. Our combination Shore Line East/Metro-North UniRail Ticket saves you up to $51 a month. And, with no traffic, weather, car or parking problems and expenses, it's a great transportation bargain.
UniRail tickets are available at Union Station in New Haven, at any New Haven Line ticket window, and through Metro-North's Mail&Ride program. For further information on the Mail & Ride program, contact Metro-North at 1 (212) 532-4900.
Connecticut customers can purchase a Shore Line East one-way ticket and a Metro-North one-way ticket in one quick transaction at any ticket office or ticket machine.
