Local Buses


The Connecticut Department of Transportation, through CTTRANSIT, provides the 30-Bradley Flyer bus service as a link between Bradley International Airport and downtown Hartford.

The 30-Bradley Flyer route provides semi-express bus service to Bradley International Airport for a low local bus fare (the one-way fare, effective January 19, 2014, is $1.75). The Bradley Flyer provides direct service to the Connecticut Convention Center and Union Station in Hartford. 

The trips operate approximately hourly between downtown Hartford and the airport, seven days a week. 

Passengers are responsible for their luggage, if any. The semi-express, limited-stop trip between downtown and the airport only takes about 30 minutes. 

Please note: All buses stop on the outer roadway at Terminal A. Please be sure you are at the bus stop five (5) minutes before your bus is due. Because of security measures at Bradley International Airport, buses will not park or stand at either terminal. Your patience and cooperation are appreciated.

All CTtransit buses have wheelchair lifts or ramps for access by persons with disabilities. Also, the bus can “kneel” to lower the first step height. Please ask the operator to kneel the bus to assist you in boarding or alighting. Most types of mobility devices (wheelchairs, 3-wheel scooters, and walkers) can be accommodated on the buses. Each bus has a system for securing wheelchairs near the front of the bus. CTtransit safety policy requires a 4-point securement for all mobility devices. Use of the lap belt is recom-mended for the customer´s maximum safety.
Non-wheelchair, mobility impaired passengers may also use the lift or ramp to board the bus. Please ask the operator to deploy the mobility access unit. Passengers standing on the lift device should hold the handrails firmly and watch their head because of the vertical height limitations.
