OUR COMMITMENT TO ACCESSIBILITY FOR EVERYONE
The Hartford Line is a new type of passenger rail service that adds connectivity, faster travel times and access to more destinations in Connecticut and beyond. The Connecticut Department of Transportation is committed to improving the experience for all travelers on the Hartford Line. This pledge includes building state-of-the-art stations at Berlin, Meriden and Wallingford as well as making upgrades to our coaches.
Our new stations feature level boarding, elevators, visual and audible messaging systems and monitors displaying arrival times. Additionally, we are making upgrades to our fleet to provide one onboard restroom per train set that will meet current ADA accessibility standards and provide accessibility for all customers.
CTDOT has been and will continue working with stakeholders, community leaders, and accessibility advocates to ensure that the new Hartford Line service provides accessibility to all. Below, is information about the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) status of Hartford Line stations and trains, as well as plans for improvements on the way.
