ConnDOT: ConnDOT Public Transportation

Public Transportation
 
ConnDOT supports a variety of alternatives to driving alone, including express and local buses, two rail lines, a statewide vanpool system and other services to reduce traffic congestion and improve mobility in Connecticut and throughout the region.
 
To encourage use of public transportation, ConnDOT is offering a Free Trial Ride incentive on state-subsidized buses and existing Easy Street vanpool routes with available seats.
