Todos a bordo!
(All aboard!)
On Wednesday, May 1 st , CRCOG staff showed it’s support for CT fastrak with a luncheon trip to Brazil Grill Churrascaria on Park Street, Hartford.
The buses were full, the food was excellent, and a good time was had by all!
Various forms of bus passes were used to pay the fares, including the 2-hour pass, the Go-CT tap card, and the student-issued U-Pass. This was the first trip on public transit for many staff members, and won’t be the last! CRCOG aims to utilize CT transit , CT rail , and the CT fastrak more often by planning meetings and outings along transit routes.
