The ’83’, ’85’ and CTfastrak (‘121’) buses from Hartford and Depot Square in Manchester serve the college. There is one stop on campus on Founders Drive South, in front of the Arts, Sciences and Technology Center. For information on schedules, call CTtransit at 860-525-9181 or visit them online.
Students will be able to obtain a semester CTTransit U-Pass from the Bursar’s Office. The U-Pass allows unlimited rides on CTTransit bus and rail lines within the State of Connecticut. The Bursar’s Office will verify that the student has paid the $20 transportation included in the standard semester costs and will require the student to show a current MCC student ID to obtain the pass. CT Transit requires all students using their U-Passes to show their current student ID to access the bus. If when arriving at the window a student does not have a current student ID, they will be directed to the Office of Student Activities to obtain an ID prior to receiving the U-Pass from the Bursar’s Office. There is a $5 fee for student IDs.
