How To Catch The CANDYSTRIPER BusOn-Board Bus RulesJob Access Service



Route 1 - Winsted

Effective immediately, the addition of the Winsted Hospital on Spencer Hill has been added as a stop on the Candystriper Winsted Route. There are no other changes to stops, but the demand to have a stop at the hospital, from patients and administers, had escalated.

The Route 1 bus will now stop at the location on every trip to Winsted as opposed to the On-Request only option. The route travels five times a day, back and forth from Torrington. The stop will be five minutes after the Stop & Shop/Ledgebrook Plaza. Click here to see Route 1 bus arrival time changes.

NWCTD administration is in the process of updating both the web site and all printed materials to reflect this new stop.

Any questions, please call 860-489-2535.
