As new transit options in Connecticut are coming online, riders who can use them will enjoy increased access to employment, education, healthcare, vital services and recreation. Studies show that mass transit can help reduce transportation costs that now consume an average of 19% of household budgets. But while some riders will live within a quick walk of this new transit, those living farther away will need easy, affordable links from home to the station and the station to work. How can revised buslines, ride-sharing and other new approaches to closing that First/Last Mile Gap, now being employed across the country, provide models for Connecticut?
