Public Meetings Scheduled for Feedback on Comprehensive Transit Service Analysis of CTtransit New Britain / Bristol Division

Capitol Region Council of Governments Will Be Hosting a Final Round of Public Meetings to

Gather Feedback on Potential Local Bus Service Improvements.

Hartford, Connecticut – The Capitol Region Council of Governments (CRCOG) will be holding a final round of public meetings to gather input from transit riders and other community members on service improvement options as part of the Comprehensive Transit Service Analysis of the New Britain/Bristol Division of CTtransit. A table with event details can be found at the end of this release.

The Comprehensive Transit Service Analysis is a collaboration between CRCOG, the Connecticut Department of Transportation, CTtransit, and the Naugatuck Valley Council of Governments. The purpose of this effort is to evaluate existing route effectiveness, identify areas of unmet transit need, and recommend bus service improvements to increase ridership and convenience within the communities of Berlin, Bristol, New Britain, Plainville, and Southington. Feedback from the upcoming meetings will be used to critique the presented service change recommendations, which will then be incorporated into the effort’s Final Report.

Open house meetings will be held from 5pm-7pm. At 5:30pm, each open house will feature a short presentation about the study and potential improvement options. Study maps will be on display before and after the presentation, and study team members will be on hand to answer questions.

This effort is in addition to CRCOG’s Comprehensive Transit Service Analysis of the Hartford Division of CTtransit, which was conducted from 2014-2017 and finalized in April 2017. More information on that effort can be found at
