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.
Municipal representatives, CTDOT, and transit operators will be meeting to discuss the Draft Preferred Scenario and Service Plan for the New Britain/Bristol Division of CTtransit. This scenario was developed by incorporating feedback from public outreach efforts conducted earlier this year. The meeting is open to the public and will include opportunities for public comment. A draft meeting agenda is available here, and the meeting details are as follows:
Thursday, July 27, 2017
9:30am – 11:30am
New Britain Public Library, Community Room
20 High Street, New Britain
The second round of public meetings are being planned for Fall 2017. Please check back for updates. If you would like to receive an email notification when meeting information is available, please send a request to email@example.com.
The first round of public outreach meetings were held on April 19th and 20th. At these events, the study team presented two scenarios for potential service improvements. You can download the presentation given at the open house meetings and the posters for each scenario here:
