The state Department of Transportation has announced informational sessions on January 19 to gather opinions on the new CTfastrak East operations. Goodwin College, the Shoppes at Buckland Hills, and Manchester Community College have been suggested as destinations for the new routes. Residents, commuters, and business owners are invited to make their suggestions to the DOT at the Jan. 19 meetings: Goodwin College Community Room, One Riverside Drive, East Hartford, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and Whiton Memorial Library’s auditorium, 100 N. Main St., Manchester, 5 to 7 p.m.
Goodwin students and employees are encouraged to attend the meeting to advocate for the College to be included as a stop on the CTfastrak East route. For those who cannot attend at that time, survey forms are available at the Welcome Center, One Riverside Drive, to express opinions.
