Connecticut Transit Stamford (CT Transit Stamford Division) is the division of Connecticut Transit for the Stamford metropolitan area. In Stamford it provides service on 18 routes around Stamford, Connecticut, with routes centered on downtown Stamford and providing local bus service to Norwalk, White Plains, New York via the I-Bus, and Port Chester, New York,[2] with its service area on both ends partially overlapping that of the Norwalk Transit District.

Since 1979, the Hartford, New Haven, and Stamford divisions of CT Transit have been operated by First Transit.[3]

Routes[edit]

These are the routes operated by CT Transit in the Stamford Division.[4]

Note: Prior to 2002, CT Transit Stamford routes were identified by letters rather than numbers, just like the systems in Hartford and New Haven.[5] Some bus stop signs outside of downtown Stamford and Greenwich still display the route letters.
