On Friday, February 14, 2014, join Stamford Mayor David Martin, Carl Kuehner, Building and Land Technology’s Chief Executive Officer, Sandy Goldstein, President of Stamford Downtown, and a host of other dignitaries for a ribbon cutting and inaugural ride on the Harbor Point Trolley. The trolley, which is free to the public, was initiated by BLT to provide a quick, safe, and convenient way for both Stamford Downtown and Harbor Point residents to access amenities downtown and in the South End. It will be an efficient addition to Stamford’s transportation system for short trips across downtown and will accommodate the South End’s growing population. It will also serve as a link between other transit modes such as Metro-North and Amtrak trains and CT Transit bus that connect people to adjacent neighborhoods and nearby cities.
The free trolley will run everyday in a fourteen-stop, thirty-minute loop. Expanding transit options from Harbor Point and the Transportation Center to the downtown will support Stamford Downtown’s long-established goals to connect adjacent neighborhoods to downtown amenities, and support a district where people can live, work, shop, and be entertained.
The first 100 riders on Friday, February 14, 2014 from noon to 11:00 p.m. will receive one free admission to the Alive@Five Festival this summer! This offer is only valid for those 21 and over.
