CONNECTICUT ATARIFEST '92 TRAVEL TIPS
Getting here by Train or Bus
 
Riding the Rails
 
If Amtrak is not sidelined by a labor dispute, rail passengers can reach
Windsor Locks aboard several trains that run daily between Washington,
D.C., and Boston, and several points between the two. Trains stopping at
Windsor Locks include the Narragansett, Fast Mail, Benjamin Franklin,
Yankee Clipper, Connecticut Yankee, Bankers, Bay State, Senator, Merchants
Limited and Atlantic City Express.
 
We advise you contact Amtrak directly for the latest train and schedule
information. Not every train serving arriving at and departing from Windsor
Locks does so on a daily basis, and club car, snack, beverage and Railfone
services are not available on every train. Certain restrictions may apply.
For information about fares, schedules, restrictions and connecting trains,
contact Amtrak by phoning (800) USA-RAIL [Deaf persons may communicate with
Amtrak's special teletypewriter by calling (800) 523-6590]).
 
Here are some current fares (as of June 24, 1992) for Amtrak service
between Windsor Locks and Northeast cities. The fare represents the price
of a non-holiday, round trip (two-way) ticket.
 
CITY             ROUND TRIP FARE
Boston, MA              $38
New York, NY             46
Trenton, NJ              68
Washington, DC           99

If you have a room reservation at the Sheraton, call the hotel (627-5311)
when you arrive at the train station. A bellman will dispatch a driver to
take you there. Some other hotels will offer similar shuttle service;
otherwise, a taxi ride from the train station to the Sheraton will run you
about $7.
 
 
Bus Service
 
Bradley International Airport is served by Peter Pan Bus Lines in the
Hartford-Springfield, Mass. region. Ten buses operate daily between
downtown Hartford and the airport. The ticket price for the 25-minute ride
is $9. Nine buses run between Springfield and the airport. The half-hour
ride also costs $9.
 
For further information about fares, schedules, restrictions and connecting
shuttles, contact Peter Pan Bus Lines at (203) 627-3210 or (413) 781-2900.
Regularly scheduled interstate bus service is provided to most points in
Connecticut by Greyhound/Trailways Bus Line [(203) 547-5100] and Bonanza
Bus Line [(800) 556-3815].
