On May 16, First Town DownTown welcomed guest speakers from the Connecticut Department of Transportation, Lisa Rivers, Transit Manager of Public Transportation and Program Manager for Marketing, and Randal Davis, Special Assistant to the Commissioner. They spoke about the Hartford Line, which is a new regional passenger rail service that expands service between New Haven, Hartford and Springfield.
An attentive group of community residents and business owners met at the newly renovated Jim’s Pizza for First Town Downtown’s Main Street Matters Morning Meeting. “My job is to make people not use highways,” said Ms. Rivers. “Your world just got bigger!” Beginning June 16th, the Hartford Line will stop more frequently in Windsor from 5:00 am to 11:00 pm. A trip to Hartford would be $3 and a trip to New Haven would be $9.25. On June 16th and 17th, you may ride the trains for free!
