Transport Hartford advocates for biking, walking, transit, and multi-modal transportation as part of a sustainable and socially just city and region. For Hartford to succeed and grow, it has to move beyond single occupancy vehicle travel both culturally and with appropriately designed infrastructure. Join the movement!
Friday, Sept 1st – Bike, Walk, and Bus to Work Meetup
7:00am – 9:00am at Blue State Coffee, 777 Main Street, Hartford
Join this informal, social gathering on the first Friday of each month. We’ll move the location to different Hartford coffee spots. Stop by on your way in to work to chat, or just swing down for a coffee and say hello.
Conversation Starter – CTfastrak. Who’s used it? What do you think?
Wednesday, Sept 6th – East Coast Greenway, East Hartford Ribbon Cutting and Ride
6pm at Great River Park, 301 East River Drive, East Hartford, CT 06108
Ribbon cutting ceremony followed by a short bike ride on the riverfront trails. Officials attending the event include Governor Dannel Malloy (invited), East Hartford Mayor Marcia Leclerc, Riverfront Recapture CEO and President Michael Zaleski, and ECGA Executive Director Dennis Markatos-Soriano.
Wednesday, Sept 27th – CTtransit Goes East to UConn Storrs
Join Transport Hartford as we ask a panel of experts and UConn students about this important link. BYOQ – Bring your own questions!
CTtransit now connects all the way out to UConn Storrs. CTfastrak and Bradley Flyer airport express both serve this hourly connection that links the entire regional transit system to the state’s flagship university.
What does this mean for the region? What does this mean for you? What does this mean for students, faculty, and staff at the new Downtown Hartford UConn campus? Will UConn Storrs students use the CTtransit connection to visit restaurants and attractions in the capital city? Will more Hartford area students consider UConn when applying to colleges?
