CT Governor Dan Malloy went to bat for transportation during his administration’s first Bond Commission meeting on Friday, releasing over $250 million for transportation-related projects, with approximately $203 million of that going to transit and transit-oriented development initiatives.

The Commission released $5 million of the $10 million available for transit-oriented development pilot grants that have been sitting on its agenda for almost three years. It also agreed to bond $82 million for the remaining M-8 rail cars and about $60 million for station and parking upgrades at rail stations throughout the state.
