Governor Dannel Malloy cuts the ribbon on the new CT Fastrak rapid transit bus line that now connects downtown New Britain and downtown Hartford with local stops.

The dedicated bus corridor will improve air quality and relieve congestion on the interstate as it connects various inter-city bus routes. Pedestrians and cyclists have access to a five mile trail incorporated into the route. The project came in on time and under budget at about $570 million, with around $400 million coming from federal grants, and the balance from the state. The system includes a new generation of environmentally-friendly, super low-emission, hybrid diesel-electric buses.
