Our Calorie Calculator estimates how many Calories you will burn using Metabolic Equivalent (MET) values from Compendium of Physical Activities. The Compendium idenitifes the relative energy cost of undertaking various activities compared with doing nothing. We then combine this with your weight and the estimated duration of the activity, taking into account the length of the route and the hills involved, to estimate the total Calories burned.
When selecting an Activity setting, select the speed you would normally travel at on flat ground.
Please remember, the estimated number of Calories is just a guide and the actual number of Calories burned may vary depending on other factors such as weather and terrain.

Cheshire to Hartford
Take the MetroNorth 5:49 AM train from Grand Central to New Haven, arriving 7:49 AM
From New Haven Union Station, take the Connecticut Transit J/Whitney Avenue bus to the stop at the corner of Willow Street and West Main in Cheshire. See at what time it departs to see if it is convenient to take the train that early.
It about (by schedule) a 46 minute bus ride. I can't figure out for sure the fare from the website but it would seem to $1.50 - exact change only (not sure about dollar bills) which can be paid on boarding the bus. I've never taken a Connecticut Transit bus but we should have time at the station to figure it out. I suggest bringing along a few dollars in change just in case.
