Hartford Line A Success


More than a million people have traveled on the 62-mile Hartford Line commuter rail since its debut in June 2018. State officials say it’s better than they expected.

The $769 million Hartford Line carries riders to destinations between New Haven, Hartford and Springfield. 

Connecticut Department of Transportation Commissioner Joseph Giulietti attributes the success to the "highly coordinated schedules and great customer service.” 

Governor Ned Lamont plans to expand the Hartford Line.

Bill began his radio journey on Long Island, followed by stops in Schenectady, Bridgeport, Boston and New York City. He’s glad to be back on the air in Fairfield County, where he has lived with his wife and two sons for more than 20 years.
