WELCOME TO THE

SOUTHEAST AREA TRANSIT DISTRICT

 


The Connecticut Department of Transportation will conduct public hearings on proposed public transit fare increases for bus, rail and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) paratransit services; and proposed service reductions to the New Haven Line, New Canaan Line, Danbury Line, Waterbury Line and Shore Line East rail services. Additionally, information meetings will be held on proposed CT River ferry fare increases. No bus or ADA paratransit services reductions are proposed at this time.

If approved, a rail fare increase would take effect in three phases - 10 percent on July 1, 2018, 5 percent on July 1, 2020 and 5 percent on July 1, 2021, for a cumulative total of 21.28 percent. A 14.3 percent, or 25-cent, bus fare increase would take effect on July 1, 2018. Rail service reductions would also take effect on or about July 1, 2018; no bus service changes are proposed at this time. A $1 increase in the car fare for the Rocky Hill-Glastonbury and Chester-Hadlyme ferries is also proposed.

The rail service proposals include significant reductions to off-peak and weekend rail services on the New Canaan, Danbury and Waterbury branch rail lines, and elimination of off-peak and weekend service as well as significant reductions in peak period service on Shore Line East.
