There is a bus lane on Asylum Street in the Capital City that is expected to be part of the Connecticut Fasttrack Busway and that bustling street right in the heart of downtown Hartford.
The bus lane plan would wipe out all off-street parking on Aslyum Street to make room for buses. Many of these businesses use valet parking, so that would be eliminated.
The business owners also said the area wouldn’t be pedestrian friendly anymore and they said it’ll be bad for business.
