Windsor-Hartford Bus Service in the 1940’s and 1950’s

Bus service in Windsor was an important topic of concern during the 1940’s and 1950’s.

In 1944, some Windsor bus riders sought to have the two-token bus fare to and from Hartford lowered to one token. Others opposed lowering the fare to one token because they felt the two-token fare “will keep undesirable people out of town.” Ultimately, the bus company refused to lower the fare on the grounds that the company would lose money if it did.
In 1950, bus patrons traveling to Rainbow and Poquonock from Hartford no longer had to stop in Windsor Center and change busses. The bus company provided through bus service once an hour, from 7:30 am to 11:30 pm.
