Sen. Cohen Releases Statement on Hartford CTfastrak Ranked No. 1 in Nation

 Today, State Senator Christine Cohen, Senate Chair of the Transportation Committee, welcomed news that Hartford’s CTfastrak bus system has been ranked number one in the nation, according to the international group, Institute for Transportation and Development Policy.

“It is incredibly exciting to see Connecticut receiving international recognition for something many residents already know very well – CTfastrak is the best bus system in the country!” Said State Senator Christine Cohen. “Ensuring that our transit systems are fast, clean, comfortable and efficient grows public support and grows ridership, leading to increased connectivity in our state and decreasing our reliance on single occupancy vehicles. I am so proud of the work of Commissioner Eucalitto and the Connecticut Department of Transportation and I am eager to build upon these successes!”

The institute, which is an international nonprofit promoting sustainable transportation worldwide, runs an ongoing ranking for bus rapid transit (BRT) systems globally. Read more here.
