Meriden 2020, Bringing It Together

Commuter rail operator selected and service to begin May 2018

The Connecticut Department of Transportation recently announced the selection of the CT Rail operator --a partnership between TransitAmerica Services and Alternate Concepts ---that will operate and manage service on the CTrail Hartford Line.  CT DOT also announced the timeline for the advent of service on the New Haven to Hartford Rail Line which is scheduled to begin in May of 2018.  According to DOT staff, new transit facilities, including the new rail station in Meriden and a commuter parking lot on State Street near the Meriden Green, will be open in conjunction with the start of rail service.  CT DOT has yet to announce the opening date of the commuter parking garage located behind 24 Colony Street which is expected to open sometime in 2017.
