Just a short walk away from the city’s central business district, the Harbor Point development, and green affordable housing, Stamford’s Transportation Center is one of the busiest transit hubs in Connecticut. But the station area is not the welcoming gateway to the city that it could be. As the city continues its work to create a vibrant, pedestrian-friendly district around the roughly 30,000 passenger per day facility, a ConnDOT plan to redevelop station-area properties and replace a parking facility must be designed to help—not hinder—these efforts.

    It is already so easy to go from the Stamford Transit Center to the city, it is one of the most walkable urban experiences in CT. Why are we getting into more bonding debt to take away funds for rubber on the road transit Operations for any more construction work There? Oy!
