Improving Transit in Manchester



Please join the Town of Manchester and the Capitol Region Council of Governments (CRCOG) on Thursday, October 11th for a public meeting on improving public transit in Manchester. The event will take place at the MCC on Main Gallery, 903 Main Street. An Open House will be held from 6:00-7:00 and a facilitated discussion will begin at 7:00.

The Manchester 2020 Draft Plan recommends improving public transit within Manchester and better connecting Manchester with upcoming regional transit improvements including commuter rail and bus rapid transit.  This study and this meeting will directly address these goals and look at how existing bus service could be enhanced and improved.  We hope you will attend to share your thoughts and ideas.

The Manchester bus study is a piece of the Sustainable Knowledge Corridor project, a $2 million grant from the Department of Housing and Urban Development that is looking at how our Hartford/Springfield region can grow economically and sustainably.
