The Greater Hartford Transit District still encourages and recommends wearing a mask on board buses and while inside Hartford Union Station.


Important notifications and alerts will be posted here when available.


Due to construction on the canopy roof, substitute bus service will replace select Amtrak and CTrail Hartford Line train services effective Monday, July 18, 2022, through Friday, September 9, 2022. Additionally, the HL train service will be replaced by a substitute bus service on Friday, September 10, 2022, and Saturday, September 11, 2022, to complete the work on the canopy roof. Local buses will operate as a substitute for trains that will stop at all Hartford Line Stations, and passengers will be directed to the bus pick-up and drop-off location by signage on the platform. Express buses will make limited stops to offer quicker travel between Hartford and New Haven.

A detailed bus schedule is available here. Please note bus substituted train station time departures may be earlier than scheduled train time departures. Train fares will be in effect on the substitute buses. Passengers are required to purchase a CTrail or Amtrak ticket to board the substitute buses.

Passengers are encouraged to visit HartfordLine.com or Amtrak.com for the latest service information. Riders can also sign up for alerts sent directly to their phone or email at HartfordLine.com/service-alerts.

Additionally, the Southside stairs from the platform at Union Station to Asylum St will be temporarily closed due to construction activities. Please utilize the stairs inside the station or the elevator during this time. We apologize for any inconvenience.


All fares on ADA Paratransit will be free to our passengers from April 1, 2022 through November 30, 2022.
