New Britain / Bristol

In addition to the Hartford Transit Study, the Capitol Region Council of Governments (CRCOG) is evaluating transit service, and the potential for future transit service, in the New Britain/Bristol Division of CTtransit to benefit towns that recently joined CRCOG. The study area includes Berlin, New Britain, Plainville, and Southington, as well as the neighboring city of Bristol. Like the Hartford Transit Study, the New Britain/Bristol Area Transit Study is being conducted in partnership with CTtransit and the Connecticut Department of Transportation (CTDOT).

Key documents and announcements related to this study will be posted below. Check back regularly for surveys, public meeting notices, presentations, and reports.


We want to hear from you! Please help CTtransit improve bus service in the New Britain/Bristol Division service area (Berlin, Bristol, Plainville, New Britain, and Southington) by completing this short survey. The survey will remain open through May 7, 2017.
