The Connecticut Department of Transportation (CTDOT) has announced a new program that offers discounts and deals for rail riders at a variety of businesses in Connecticut and Western Massachusetts. The Transit Rewards Program will be applied to riders that use the Hartford Line, the Shore Line East and CTfastrak. More than 50 businesses are currently participating.
"This exciting new rewards program is designed to benefit area businesses, restaurants and attractions and encourage transit ridership," CTDOT Commissioner James P. Redeker said in a statement. "It's a 'win' for local businesses and a 'win' for our loyal transit riders."
Riders can redeem their rewards by showing their transit ticket, pass or a transit rewards coupon at time of purchase, according to the DOT. A list of the rewards and coupons is available at www.CTrides.com/TransitRewards.
