In 1976, Connecticut Transit became responsible for much of the public transportation in the state of Connecticut, acquiring the Connecticut Co.


STREET RAILWAY COMPANIES (CONNECTICUT COMPANY)

Many individual streetcar companies were eventually acquired by the Connecticut Co., prior to the introduction of buses.


STREET RAILWAY COMPANIES (OTHERS)

Several individual streetcar companies remained independent of the Connecticut Co., although some of the successor bus operations eventually eventually began operating under contract for the publicly owned Connecticut Transit.
