Hartford shuttle launched

- March 24, 2008

A “reservation only” shuttle to Union Station in Hartford is now being offered by UConn’s Transportation Services for faculty, staff, and students.

Amtrak trains (www.amtrakcom) and Peter Pan buses (www.peterpanbus.com) run in and out of Union Station.

Services are offered for faculty and staff traveling on official UConn business. Students may use it at any time.

The service is also available for those coming to Storrs for freshman and transfer orientation, doctoral candidates coming for interview, visiting professors, and guest speakers.

The service to Union Station, like the Bradley Airport shuttle, will operate throughout the year. Reservations should be made at least one week in advance.

The cost is $50 one-way and $100 round-trip; group rates are available for three or more passengers traveling and paying together.

Payment may be made by cash, check, Husky Bucks, or department accounts, and must be made before traveling.

All drivers are state employees who, by the codes of conduct, cannot accept tips.

Pick-ups and drop-offs are at locations on the Storrs campus, including the Nathan Hale Inn, or at apartment complexes currently serviced with UConn buses.

There are no pick-ups or drop-offs at individual homes.

To schedule the service or to ask questions, contact Erin or Janet at: Erin.Lirot@uconn.edu, 860-486-6902; Janet.Freniere@uconn.edu, 860-486-4804.
