COLLABORATIVE PLANNING IN THE GRIFFIN LINE CORRIDOR MIS

These remarks focus on the overall planning context of the Griffin Line major investment study (MIS). The Greater Hartford Transit District (GHTD) has been the lead agency on the Griffin Line project, representing the City of Hartford, other member municipalities, and the business community. GHTD is not the transit operating agency in the Hartford region. It is an umbrella agency with policy oversight and project development responsibilities, which also operates paratransit, privatized commuter bus operations, and other services in the region. GHTD has absolutely no funding or taxing authority on its own. Topics addressed in this discussion are: project background; the collaborative planning process; MIS and evaluation of alternatives; local and regional selection of light rail alternative; and the Griffin Line financing and implementation plan.
