CTfastrak to Hold Informational Open Houses, Starting Tonight

CTfastrak, Connecticut’s new Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system, is rapidly gearing up for its opening day early next spring. The new service will provide a connection between the cities of New Britain and Hartford along an exclusive dedicated busway. In preparation for CTfastrak’s launch, ConnDOT is ramping up its public outreach to help potential riders learn to navigate the new system with a series of open houses throughout the next two months in communities along the new system’s route. The new sessions will provide scheduling information and include the planned route maps. The sessions will include a model of the new ticket vending machines so that riders can get comfortable with the new off-board proof-of-payment fare system, similar to the New Jersey Hudson-Bergen Light Rail and MTA Select Bus Service fare systems.

The first open house will be held tonight from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Hartford Public Library on Main Street, and the next event dates are as follows:

  • Thursday, December 4 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Old State House, 800 Main St, Hartford
  • Tuesday, December 9 from 6 to 8 p.m. at CCSU ITBD Center, 185 Main St., New Britain
