Bus Transportation

Bus Service

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 the online CTtransit schedules.

Bus Passes

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.  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.
