Construction began on the New Haven bus maintenance and storage facility in the summer of 2008. The facility will be constructed on a former industrial site in the Town of Hamden. This new facility will replace the existing garage in New Haven and will have the capacity to support the current operations in the greater New Haven area as well as service expansion in the future. Located on State Street in Hamden, Connecticut, the new facility will accommodate the operations maintenance and administrative requirements of about 150 buses and 20 support vehicles. The facility will be operated by Connecticut Transit.

Connecticut Clean Fuel Program
The Connecticut Clean Fuel Program provides funding to municipalities and public agencies that purchase, operate, and maintain alternative/clean fuel vehicles. This includes vehicles that operate on compressed natural gas, propane, electric power, hydrogen fuel cell or hybrid electric power.

The program also makes funding available to municipalities and public agencies for the purchase of diesel retrofit technologies (DRT). Examples of DRT include diesel particulate filters, diesel oxidation catalysts and closed crankcase filtration systems.  Only DRT that are certified by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and/or the California Air Resources Board will be eligible for funding.
