CTfastrak, the state’s biggest mass transit investment, and its first rapid-transit bus system, is on schedule to open in March 28, 2015, reports the Hartford Courant. Online trip planners are ready, drivers are being trained, and delivery of the 60-foot lime green buses begins this week.
In an effort to prepare and attract riders the CT Dept. of Transportation is holding a series of open houses. In addition, working models of the new electronic ticket-vending machines are being displayed along the new route.
ConnDOT is encouraging employees and employers to attend to find out how CTfastrak can assist them with getting to and from work. They’ve begun meeting with major employers along CTfastrak’s route such as the UConn Health Center.
