CRCOG is a proponent of expanded commuter and regional rail access in the Capitol Region and is excited to see expanded commuter rail service along the New Haven-Hartford-Springfield line beginning in 2018. For more information on this upcoming service, please visit the NHHS Rail website.

Moving forward, CRCOG will continue to support increased rail service in the region. Possible commuter connections from Hartford to Boston and New York along with the rail investment plan as a part of the NEC Future project would help to further connect the Hartford region with its neighbors to encourage economic growth and regional tourism.
