The Transport Hartford Academy deepens resident engagement and is supporting a growing group of active and informed residents who will shape future transportation developments.
Transport Hartford educates residents in the region that are passionate about biking, walking, transit, and multi-modal transportation as part of a sustainable and socially just region. For Hartford to succeed and grow it has to move beyond single occupancy vehicle travel both culturally and with well designed infrastructure. The Transport Hartford Action Teams and empowered citizens will improve the region’s economic vitality, quality of life, and environmental sustainability.

In 2018 we were awarded a Road to Zero Grant (July 2018 – June 2019). Transport Hartford worked with Blue Hills Civic Association, the Police Activities League, and the Hartford Police Explorers to reduce crashes with injuries and fatalities in Hartford. The program is a combination of teen internships, community outreach, and crosswalk traffic calming. More info here.
