The New Haven-Hartford-Springfield (NHHS) Rail Program represents a broad partnership between the State of Connecticut, Amtrak and the Federal Railroad Administration, as well as the states of Massachusetts and Vermont. The goal is ambitious – to provide those living, working or traveling between New Haven, Hartford and Springfield with high speed rail service equal to the nation’s best rail passenger service. The new service, called the CTrail Hartford Line (Hartford Line) will connect with existing Metro-North commuter rail and Amtrak Acela high-speed rail services on the New Haven Line to New York and on the Northeast Corridor to New London and Boston. With this level of direct and connecting service linking the region, towns along the future Hartford Line will become magnets for growth – ideal places to live and to relocate businesses that depend on regional markets and travel.
