ConnDOT: CTfastrak
Bureau of Public Transportation



CTfastrak is the beginning of a new era of transportation in Connecticut, combining the fast, traffic-free advantages of a train with the frequent, direct-to-your-destination flexibility of a bus. 


With express and feeder routes that use a new dedicated roadway to avoid traffic congestion on local streets and on I-84, CTfastrak will benefit a large geographic area and provide a one-seat, no transfer ride to regional employment, shopping, cultural, educational and healthcare destinations.


In addition to direct services, CTfastrak will connect with:

  • 19 Hartford express bus routes
  • 37 Hartford local routes
  • 12 New Britain/Bristol local routes
  • 28 Waterbury local routes
  • Amtrak rail service (and future New Haven-Hartford-Springfield rail service)
  • Waterbury Branch Line Metro-North service to Bridgeport, Stamford and New York City

Eleven landscaped transit stations along the way will enhance local communities with increased access and development opportunities. And a five mile multi-use trail for pedestrians and cyclists offers more transportation choices.
