A Rail Fleet for Everyone

A Rail Fleet For Everyone

It's time for riders in Connecticut to feel that their train rides are the most productive and comfortable part of their day. Replacing aging train cars will provide a modern, connected customer experience. The expanded rail fleet will enable more frequent service throughout the state and new express services to New York City.

Graphic with the following information: TIME FOR CT is a modern, accessible fleet: replacing aging, obsolete trains; and expanding the fleet to meet future needs. New fleets will improve customer experience and expand service: a fully accessible fleet; expanded shops and yards; and dual-mode locomotives for one-seat ride service to NYC

Project Spotlight #1

Rail Car Procurement to Replace & Expand Aging Fleet

CTDOT is in the process of procuring state-of-the-art rail cars to meet the diverse needs of Connecticut's rail customers. This rail car procurement is informed by two years of engagement with a Customer Advisory Panel.  CTDOT will continue to work with the Customer Advisory Panel as the new rail cars are designed and manufactured.

Project Spotlight #2

Modernizing the New Haven Yard

Upgrading and expanding the New Haven Yard will allow for an increase in Connecticut's fleet. That means newer, more comfortable cars and more frequent service. Visit the project map for more information.
