HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Connecticut transportation officials are continuing to schedule informational open houses to educate commuters and passengers about the half-billion dollar central Connecticut bus-only corridor set to open in March.

Four remaining open houses about CTfastrack are planned in January. The first is scheduled for Jan. 13, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Southington Municipal Center. Others are planned for Jan. 14 in Plainville, Jan. 21 in Cheshire and Jan. 22 in Bristol.

The public may learn more about buying tickets, planning trips, new routes and connecting to other bus routes. A new CTfastrack bus, a ticket vending machine and online trip planner will be available at each open house.

The $567 million, 9.4-mile bus-only corridor between Hartford and New Britain is scheduled to begin operations on March 28.
