If you want to take the CANDYSTRIPER ... stand at any corner along the routes and flag down the bus, then ride the easy way!
CANDYSTRIPER is a deviated flexible route system.
Call Northwest Connecticut Transit District at: (860) 489-2535, the prior day and the bus will deviate 3/4 of a mile off the route to pick you up. If you are already on the bus and need to be dropped off within 3/4 of a mile, just let the driver know and he or she will help you.
We will attempt to accommodate your request within 30 minutes, so please plan ahead if you have a scheduled appointment. A bus transfer may be necessary, depending on your location.
