Danbury gets $1.6M in federal funds to design long-shelved Transit Center to connect buses, trains

A report commissioned by the city in 2018 recommended relocating the HARTransit Pulse Point station now on Kennedy Avenue to a new location closer to the Metro-North Railroad station at 1 Patriot Drive. The proposed bus station could be built across the tracks from the train station along what is now an unused 5-acre commercial lot on Pahquioque Avenue, according to the study on transit-oriented development. The next phase of the project will be the design and traffic engineering studies related to relocating the bus station, the administration said. O’Brien described the proposed Danbury Transit Center as “a good thing for our downtown, our community, for people are wanting to walk and use public transit.” Riders could include visitors from other communities, such as Norwalk, who are attending a Hat Tricks hockey game, for example, or area residents who are looking to ride the Metro-North Railroad train.
