HARTFORD (AP) - The state Department of Transportation is providing new bus service to link UConnâ€™s main campus in Storrs with downtown Hartford and the schoolâ€™s health center in Farmington. Gov. Dannel P. Malloy says that beginning Sunday the state is expanding its eastern Connecticut routes to provide hourly service between Storrs and UConnâ€™s new Hartford campus, which will open later this month. The busses will continue on to UConn Health in Farmington.
UConn students will be provided a card to ride the bus, paid for through a new $20 per semester transportation fee. Officials say students also will be able to transfer to other busses, such as one to Bradley International Airport, and eventually a Hartford to New Haven rail line at no additional cost.
Standard bus rates apply for non-students.
