WRTD is excited to announce the arrival of new buses in its fleet. Several of WRTD’s fixed bus routes will benefit from the arrival of these buses, including popular Storrs-Willimantic route which had passengers making 84,000 trips last year.
In August WRTD also finalized the design of a new logo. This new brand confirms the arrival of a new era which is already picking up pace at WRTD. Earlier in 2018 WRTD started using a bus tracker with a website and app for riders. WRTD also has a revitalized online presence on its website, facebook and twitter. Other plans are also in the works.
The Ribbon Cutting will be held:
– Thursday, December 13, 2018 at 3:30pm
– WRTD Facility, 28 South Frontage Road, Mansfield Center, CT
All are invited. Please email Katharine to RSVP.

Ride Systems has updated their app for smartphones and tablets which includes our fixed route services. It should be easier to use. Some updates include:
- Tap a stop to see the estimated arrival time for the nearest vehicle on the route.
- Add notifications for updates on route changes.
- Don’t want to miss the bus? Tap the bell next to a stop to set stop reminders so you never have to worry.
You can use this app for both WRTD and UConn buses. Click here to download the Android app or iphone app.
