It’s official!!!!! After 13 long years have passed by — as per mandate — CT TRANSIT’s new buses are on their way onto New Britain and Bristol streets. Because the New Britain/Bristol division has the oldest fleet, it’s the first in line for the new buses.
These buses are from New Flyer and 35 feet long, unlike their counterparts from Hartford or New Haven at 40 feet, and they use diesel fuel. They are part of the $152 million stimulus package for transit projects and purchases Connecticut received last year.
More people on buses mean fewer cars on the road – and that translates into reduced congestion and cleaner air.
–M. Jodi Rell, Connecticut Governor (R)
Look for the new buses in the New Britain and Bristol areas starting this spring!
