The City of Waterbury and its surrounding communities are served by the Waterbury District of CTtransit, as well as Metro North Railroad, CT Fastrak buses, and CTDOT express commuter buses. To better facilitate transfers between these services, as well as within each system, the concept of a Greater Waterbury Transit Center has been studied on several occasions over the previous 20 years. 

As the City of Waterbury undertakes an ambitious series of projects in and around Downtown, the NVCOG aims to update this study to determine potential future economic and ridership benefits to  the City and regional riders. 

2001 WTC Report – Originally conducted by the Naugatuck Valley Development Corporation, a study completed in 2001 examined the feasibility of a transit center for the greater Waterbury area.  

Draft Greater Waterbury Transportation Center Needs And Feasibility Study March 2006– Released in 2006, the Waterbury Transit Center Needs and Feasibility Study recommended actions and potential funding sources to advance the concept. 

Environmental Impact Analysis – Completed in 2009, the environmental impact statement analyzes the long-term environmental impact of the proposed action.
