In southwestern Connecticut, you can ride the buses and trains to work, shopping, special events, meeting. You may also choose vanpools or carpools. There are four bus operators: CT Transit, Norwalk Transit District, Greater Bridgeport Transit, and Valley Transit District. The railroad — The New Haven Line — has a main line that runs along the coast and three branch lines which feed into it — the New Canaan, Danbury and Waterbury branch lines. Visit ctrides.com.
