December 2018

Dear all,

As we look back over the last year WRTD has a lot to celebrate.  Last Thursday we came together with many distinguished guests, including Commissioner James Redeker from the Connecticut Department of Transportation, to celebrate.  We have two new buses from New Flyer, and several other new-to-us buses arriving soon.  Since the beginning of 2018 we have also established a bus tracking system and adopted a new logo.  Many more improvements are in the works for the next few years.

We hope you enjoy this short newsletter that celebrates our accomplishments.

Finally, the staff and drivers of WRTD would like to wish you a happy holidays!

Best wishes,

Joe Comerford
Interim Administrator
