Partnership for Strong Communities: Connecting the Dots…to a Better Connecticut Transit System IForum

February 23, 2016 @ 9:00 am - 11:30 am

How can we utilize our state resources to leverage financing and spark economic and housing development, optimize service, reduce expenses, develop neighborhoods and ensure that transit effectively connects those who need it most to the services they use?
