The Capitol Region Council of Governments (CRCOG) which the City of Bristol makes use of certain contracts, is soliciting proposals for indefinite quantity construction contracts for renovations, repairs and upgrade projects for transportation related construction.

The Capitol Region Council of Governments is a voluntary Council of Governments formed to initiate and implement regional programs of benefit to the towns and the region.

It is guided by the chief elected officials of 38 Metro Hartford municipalities.

The mayors, first selectmen, and town council chairmen who make up the governing Policy Board recognize that the future of their individual members is tied to the future of our region.

The Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) is a list of highway, bridge, transit, and multimodal transportation projects in the Region scheduled to receive federal funds over the next four years. It summarizes projects by location, funding source, cost and year.

CTfastrak is a regional bus rapid transit system. Operated by Connecticut Transit, it is the first bus rapid transit system in Connecticut and the second in New England after the MBTA Silver Line.

CTfastrak opened on March 28, 2015 after fifteen years of planning and three years of construction.
