Bus

Ride and save in comfort.

Bus

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.

For more information on bus services available at locations throughout the state, visit our Transit Finder.
