The Transport Hartford Academy deepens resident engagement and is supporting a growing group of active and informed residents who will shape future transportation developments in the Hartford region.
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.
Join our e-mail newsletter for the latest on multimodal transportation in the region. Transport Hartford will keep you up to date on forums, workshops, policy issues, and advocacy opportunities.
Our movement is powered by people. That’s you. There is a vibrant and active Transport Hartford Facebook discussion group that gains in strength with each new member. Join the movement!
This summer, we were awarded a Road to Zero Grant (July 2018 – June 2019)! The Center will be working 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.

The Transport Hartford Academy worked with the CT Chapter of the American Planning Association and the CT Department of Transportation on the inaugural November 19th, Multimodal and Transit Summit. This summit included topics for both transportation and development professionals, combined with an evening program for residents, citizen advocates, and intersectional topics.
The first Multimodal and Transit Summit was a smashing success with 250 attendees, 70+ expert presenters, and 14 breakout sessions. Almost two-thirds of post summit survey respondents were “Delighted” by the summit overall and 70% “Strongly Agreed” that the summit should be a yearly gathering. Thanks to everyone that helped make the first Summit a reality! If you would like to support the 2019 Summit – Send us an Email.
Many of the goals of the action teams require action beyond local workshops and community meetings. Here is the draft list of policy, funding, and legislative priorities that the Transport Hartford staff has identified along with help from action teams, residents, and other partners working on biking, walking, transit, and multimodal issues.
If you have feedback or questions, send an email to Transport Hartford. Please share this list with your local leaders, legislators, and neighbors.
