UConn Stamford Connector

Stamford

Wed Aug 19

Beginning August 31, CTtransit offers convenient transit bus service between the UConn Stamford campus and the Stamford Transportation Center via Route 355 (The UConn Stamford Connector). The 355 service operates weekdays, with the first trip departing the Transportation Center at 7:00am followed by trips every twenty minutes (20 minutes) throughout the day. The last trip departing the UConn campus in the evening at 10:10pm returns to the Transportation Center. Route 355 operates on UConn class days during the fall and spring semesters only. The Connector will not operate if campus closes for weather event.

Buses on the 355 route serve three stops: The Transportation Center Bay A, Washington & Main at the University's residence (900 Washington Boulevard), and the bus stop on Franklin Street adjacent to the UConn campus. 

At this time, to safeguard drivers and the public, and protect continuity of operation of Connecticut's bus system passengers should board from the rear door with the exception of passengers who are in wheelchairs and others who require the bus to kneel. Rear door boarding will help maintain recommended social distancing by providing space of six feet or greater between customers and bus drivers. Customers should practice social distancing while waiting at bus stops and while riding the bus (Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends a distance of approximately six feet from others, when possible). Fare collection is not being enforced. This is subject to change.

Those arriving at the Stamford Transportation Center should board buses displaying the designation sign, "355 UConn Stamford" for service to the UConn Stamford campus.  Those departing campus should board buses with the destination, "355 Stamford Transportation Center", for service back to the station.
