Routes[edit]

These are the routes operated by CT Transit in the Stamford Division.[1]

Note: Prior to 2002, CT Transit Stamford routes were identified by letters rather than numbers, just like the systems in Hartford and New Haven. Some bus stop signs outside of downtown Stamford and Greenwich still display the route letters. On Sunday, August 14, 2016, buses serving the Stamford area, with the exception of the I-Bus, will be numbered 301 through 399.
