CTfastrak is Connecticut’s first Bus Rapid Transit system. It is a system of bus routes that utilize a bus-only roadway for all or a portion of your trip. CTfastrak routes are integrated with the CTtransit system, making it easy to connect, transfer and pay your fare. Bus tickets purchased for CTtransit can be used on CTfastrak, and vice versa.

The CTfastrak system provides direct service to and from Waterbury, Cheshire, Southington, Bristol, Plainville, New Britain, Newington, West Hartford, Hartford and Manchester with routes that take advantage of the bus-only CTfastrak roadway. The CTfastrak system provides a one-seat, no-transfer ride to many major regional employment, shopping and healthcare destinations as well as connections to the New Haven Line-Waterbury branch rail in Waterbury and CTrail Hartford Line service in Hartford.
