Connecticut residents are served by an extensive network of local, express, and regional bus services that provide service throughout the state. CTtransit is the state-owned bus service and the largest provider of local and express services. CTtransit also operates Connecticut’s first Bus Rapid Transit system that utilizes a bus-only roadway for routes connecting Waterbury to Hartford. Local bus services are also provided by ten other agencies.

Riding the bus is a very economical way to commute and is the most heavily used form of transit. Most services offer multi-ride, weekly, and monthly passes. CTtransit customers can get a GO CT Card  for a quick tap-on, touchless payment that offers the lowest fares for your trip. If your employer provides the federal commuter tax benefit, you can save up to 40% or more on the cost of your commute. Bus commuters are also eligible for Commuter Rewards.

CTrides offers a free trial ride program that gives commuters a chance to try and experience the convenience of bus travel. The program consists of a 10-trip bus pass and is available to commuters who do not currently use the bus. For more information and to request your free trial ride, please get in touch here.
