Corridor Advisory Committee
The Corridor Advisory Committee launched in 2013 to provide the chief elected officials and other interested parties of the cities and towns on the New Haven-Hartford-Springfield rail line and the CTfastrak rapid transit corridors with a forum to share information and tools for taking full advantage of the $1.5 billion dollar transportation investment underway. A subcommittee focused on a more detailed consideration of issues related to the CTfastrak rapid transit service was also created.
