Regional Bus Shelter Program
The District has been working with CTtransit, CTDOT and CRCOG to implement a regional bus shelter program. This program has been used to install bus shelters in a number of towns, including East Hartford, South Windsor, Windsor Locks, Bloomfield and Wethersfield. The most recent shelter was installed in October 2019 on Asylum Avenue at Bushnell Park. Future shelter installations are being planned for the Spring of 2020 in the City of Hartford, including shelter locations at Market and Talcott Streets; Asylum Avenue at Asylum Place; and on Farmington Avenue at Sigourney Street. Some of the shelters will have advertising panels, which will help to fund the maintenance of the shelters. Funding for this project is provided through Federal Transit Administration Enhancement Funds with the CTDOT and the participating towns providing the local match.
