You’ve chosen a really sustainable way to work. But if you have to get out there, to work or school, or just pick up the daily bread, then CT Rides has some great solutions for you.

CTrides is a free program that helps commuters find the best way to get to work or school. They provide resources for choice commuting options throughout Connecticut, including bus, rail, carpools, vanpools, biking, walking, and teleworking.

They are also introducing an app that allows you to pay via an app on your phone.

For fare collection using an app on your phone, it depends on which transit service you plan to use. For example, if you’re using CTtransit, you can use the Go CT Card. Your safest bet is to purchase tickets in advance through your provider’s website. They should all offer that option now. 

A tip for you should you decide to download the Go CT Card app. Be sure to keep your phone charged so that your proof of fare is readable at all times.
