State Searching for Ticket Vendor for Busway

Connecticut's Department of Transportation is seeking a firm to provide a ticket vending machine system forCTfastrak, the planned bus-only corridor being built between Hartford and New Britain.

Potential vendors have until Jan. 10 to submit letters of intent to bid on the project. The deadline to submit full proposals is Jan. 31. The Department of Transportation will then select a preferred proposer and begin negotiating a contract.

The rapid bus transit system is scheduled to begin operations in early 2015. The ticket vending machines will be installed in each CTfasttrack station, allowing people to buy single-trip and single-day tickets.

The CTfastrak project includes 11 transit stations in New Britain, Newington, West Hartford and Hartford, with busses running every three-to-six minutes during peak commuting hours.
