Central Connecticut Regional Planning AgencyCT

Transportation profile

A mature road network connects the region to the surrounding areas of Harford, Waterbury, Torrington, and New Haven. Interstates 84 and 691, State Routes 8, 9 and 72, and U.S. Route 6 serve as the primary interregional routes.

CT Transit has a large fleet of buses that go through parts of the region, with a focus on New Britain. New Britain has thirteen bus routes that go throughout the city, and make connections into surrounding towns and cities. Many of the bus routes go through residential areas, which make it easy for New Britons to access the bus. Bristol has two major bus lines that serve U.S. Route 6 and State Route 72. The rest of the region is largely underserved.
