Who We Are
Our agency mission is to provide a safe efficient intermodal transportation network that improves the quality of life and promotes economic vitality for the State and region. We are a growing public transportation system that is improving mobility for Connecticut residents and businesses and supporting economic development.
This is an exciting time to join the CTDOT. We are actively engaged in expanding our UPASS program (college student fare program) as well as facilitating and coordinating the merger of multiple existing transit systems. We are initiating autonomous bus pilots, bus rapid transit, and on demand micro transit services. We are designing and implementing a statewide fare program, overseeing new transit facility design, and analyzing first mile and last mile shuttle services. Additional projects include re-engineering existing downtown circulator services, service and fare equity analysis, and parking and transit oriented development projects along CTfastrak.

As Transit Manager you will primarily:
Manage staff and consultants to perform inspections of equipment operations to determine whether proper maintenance and operation policies are being performed;
Develop policies to meet FTA requirements for Satisfactory Continuing Control and the Americans with Disabilities Act, and manage staff who monitor whether those requirements are being met;
Manage staff responsible for competitively procuring and contracting with the private companies which operate local bus service for the Department. This will require knowledge of FTA’s requirements for data reporting under Section 15; and
Negotiate rates with bus service providers as well as coordinate funding requests from quasi-municipal transit districts.
