This study has developed a vision for southwestern Connecticut that will help reduce congestion, improve air quality and promote economic growth. It will build upon existing transportation assets and strive to improve overall system efficiency. It will also offer the transportation users choices. The study focus was to provide transportation system capacity in a way that both achieves study goals and allows transportation users to make choices rather than be required to change their way of life. The resulting vision is a hybrid of bus, rail and roadway strategies that offers customers improved flexibility in their travel options and could be incrementally expanded to meet future growth in demand.
