Mon Mar 23

In response to significantly lower ridership, most Hartford area express bus routes will adopt reduced service schedules beginning Wednesday, March 25.  Please note that some routes have been combined to decrease the number of buses on the road, while ensuring consistent and reliable service for our customers.

903-Manchester-Buckland Express

  • Service will operate every 30-40 minutes in the peak direction, with some trips operated by the 913 – Buckland/Storrs route.
  • During the AM peak, buses will depart Buckland to Hartford at 6:30, 7:00, 7:30, 8:00 & 8:25am.  During the PM peak, buses will start from Asylum St. at Bushnell Park at 3:20, 3:50, 4:20, 5:00, 5:40 & 6:30pm.
  • Midday, evening, weekend and reverse-commuter service on Route 913 will also be available.

913-Manchester-Tolland-Storrs Express

  • The No School schedule remains in effect on weekdays until further notice.  Regular service will continue to operate on Saturdays & Sundays.

Express buses will make all regular stops outside of Hartford.  In Hartford, most routes will serve Downtown and Union Station only.  The Asylum Hill and Columbus Boulevard Shuttles will operate as a stand-alone service every 15-20 minutes.  Customers can connect to these shuttle routes at Central Row, along Pearl Street or on Asylum Street at Bushnell Park/Union Station to reach their destination.

Although coach buses will continue to be used on longer routes, shorter 2‑zone routes will be operated with standard transit buses until further notice to support rear door boarding and social distancing guidelines.  Passengers who are in wheelchairs and others who require the bus to kneel should indicate to the Operator they wish to use the front door. On coach buses, customers are advised to proceed past the farebox and directly to a seat. On-board fare collection has been suspended until further notice.
