The Windham Region Transit District proposes cost-neutral changes to its fixed routes to increase service frequencies while maintaining service hours.
Developed using public meetings and feedback, surveys, and operational considerations and tested using new computer modeling technology, the proposed route changes are designed to increase ridership while increasing service frequencies with improved connectivity.
The proposed route change benefits include improved service frequency between Storrs and Willimantic and within the town of Windham and the elimination of wait times at the new intermodal center in downtown Willimantic.
Several proposed changes were made possible through WRTD’s partnership with UConn’s Husky Go, including Sunday service between Storrs and Willimantic and running a WRTD route similar to Hunting Lodge in the summer.
Current Storrs-Willimantic bus, Willimantic City Bus, Hunting Lodge, and Danielson stops impacted by the proposed changes will remain within a 5-10 minute walk to the planned routes.
To learn more about the proposed route changes and make public comments, please join WRTD at their Board meeting room at 5:30 PM on Wednesday, February 23, or attend the meeting on Zoom.
