HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ Connecticut transportation officials are holding open houses over the coming weeks to help educate commuters about the new, soon-to-open central Connecticut bus-only corridor.
The first open houses for CTfasttrack are planned in Hartford on Tuesday at the Hartford Public Library and on Thursday at the Old State House. Others are scheduled in December and January in New Britain, West Hartford, Newington, Waterbury, Southington, Plainville, Cheshire and Bristol.
Members of the public will be able to learn more about purchasing tickets, planning trips, new routes and connecting to other bus routes. A new CTfastrack bus, a ticket vending machine and online trip planner will be available at each open house.
The $567 million, 9.4-mile bus-only corridor between Hartford and New Britain is scheduled to begin operations on March 28.
