portal.ct.gov The Connecticut Department of Transportation (CTDOT) announced the resumption of fare enforcement and front door boarding on CTtransit buses statewide effective Monday, October 5, 2020. The use of the fare boxes and front door boarding was temporarily suspended statewide due to COVID-19 safety preca...
Reminder: Protect your family and ours by stopping the spread. Passengers should wear a mask or cloth face covering on all CTtransit buses and at bus stops. And remember, public transportation is for essential travel only.
All passengers should wear a face mask or face covering at all times whenever a six-foot distance from other people cannot be safely maintained on Cttransit buses, any other public transportation service in Connecticut, and within any semi-enclosed transit stop, waiting area.
This does not require the use of a mask or cloth face covering by anyone for whom doing so would be contrary to his or her health or safety because of a medical condition, a child in a child care setting, anyone under the age of 2 years, or an older child if the parent, guardian or person responsible for the child is unable to place the mask safely on the child’s face.
The CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies). The cloth face coverings recommended are not surgical masks or N-95 respirators. Those are critical supplies that must continue to be reserved for healthcare workers and other medical first responders.
Passengers should board from the rear door with the exception of passengers who are in wheelchairs and others who require the bus to kneel. Rear door boarding will help maintain space of six feet or greater between customers and bus drivers.
CTDOT strongly encourages the public to reserve bus and public transit for ESSENTIAL TRAVEL ONLY such as getting to and from work, or for procuring essential needs such as groceries.
Customers should practice social distancing while waiting at bus stops and while riding the bus.
CTtransit is still in service for those that serve us. Let’s thank all the employees at CTtransit who are keeping CT public transportation running during this critical time.

Department of Transportation makes changes to bus operations to ensure the safety of passengers and drivers
The Connecticut Department of Transportation (CTDOT) is making several adjustments to its CTtransit and CTfastrak bus operations in order to ensure the safety of passengers and drivers. Effective immediately, passengers will board from the rear door with the exception of passengers in wheelchairs and others who require the bus to kneel.
Operations Status Update
The Connecticut Department of Transportation (CTDOT) is announcing immediate temporary changes to bus operations due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak in Connecticut.
Effective immediately, passengers will now board from the rear door with the exception of passengers who are in wheelchairs and others who require the bus to kneel. Rear door boarding will help maintain recommended social distancing by providing space of six feet or greater between customers and bus drivers.
These changes are being implemented to safeguard drivers and the public, and protect continuity of operation of Connecticut’s bus system during this difficult time. These changes will be implemented on all CTtransit and CTfastrak buses, as well as all transit districts in Connecticut.
CTDOT TAKING CORONAVIRUS PRECAUTIONS FOR PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION
The Connecticut Department of Transportation (CTDOT) is announcing precautions taken for Connecticut’s public transportation system as a result of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
Safety of customers and employees are of the highest importance. CTDOT is taking actions based on the recommendations from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other state and federal health agencies and experts. These actions, which began last week, are being conducted for all CTrail Hartford Line, CTrail Shore Line East, and New Haven Line (Metro-North) commuter rail services, as well as all CTtransit and local transit district bus services throughout the state.
These measures include:
--Nightly sanitizing of all trains and buses including an interior wipe down of high contact surfaces using enhanced cleaning and disinfection protocols recommended by the CDC
--Station operators have increased cleaning of stations using CDC-recommended cleaning products and methods
At our busiest train stations, Stamford, Bridgeport and New Haven, touch points such as door handles, escalator handrails and elevator buttons are being wiped down multiple times each day
"We would like to assure our customers that we are taking all appropriate measures to address this public health crisis," stated CTDOT Commissioner Joseph Giulietti. "The health and well-being of all of our passengers and employees is our number one priority and we will continue to monitor and stay on top of the situation as it changes.”
The State of Connecticut is taking various actions to respond to the spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19). CTrail and CTtransit operations are also staying in constant communication with state and federal emergency management agencies to adjust protocols, if necessary. CTDOT will continue to respond to the latest on COVID‑19 with safety of our customers and employees as the highest priority.

Waterbury, Meriden and Wallingford Route Number and Name Changes Effective June 4
Waterbury | Meriden | Wallingford
The Connecticut Department of Transportation is implementing a new statewide route numbering system for all CTtransit bus routes. The new system is designed to work with new technologies such as real time bus information. It will make the bus system easier to navigate for new and current bus riders. The new numbering system is based on the areas our routes serve.
Bus routes that operate in the Waterbury and Central Connecticut area will be numbered as follows, effective June 4, 2017:
101-199 – CTfastrak services
201-299 – Greater New Haven and Wallingford (local)
401-499 –Waterbury and Naugatuck Valley (local)
501-599 – New Britain and Meriden (local)
901-999 – CTtransit express services
Changes to Names and Numbers
Numbering and Name Changes Effective June 4, 2017.
Some bus routes that overlap have been combined. Some routes that “branch off” to serve more than one destination will have a letter added after the number to make those trips easier to identify. These letters will correspond to the location served.
For example, Routes 15 & 16 will be combined into the new Route 416. Buses designated 416F will serve Farmcrest Dr. while 416M buses serve Montoe Rd.
Important: no changes to the bus routes or schedules are being made at this time.
Waterbury Local Routes
Most local bus routes serving Waterbury will simply add a “4” in front of their existing route numbers. For example, Route 11 is now route 411. However, some routes are being combined or adopting new numbers. Details: https://www.cttransit.com/news/waterbury-meriden-and-wallingford-route-number-and-name-changes-effective-june-4
