Briefly: Shuttle to extend free service to connect Union Station and the Green

The Union Station shuttle will extend its free weekday services to the Green, City Hall spokeswoman Jessica Mayorga announced in a Tuesday press release. The shuttles, which currently transport rail passengers to off-site parking locations such as the Temple Street garage, will now run every 20 minutes from 6:10 a.m. to 10:15 p.m. on a route that includes a stop downtown, which Mayorga said will provide Yale students a more efficient way to reach Union Station from the campus area. Mayor John DeStefano Jr. and transportation officials will announce the changes at a 10 a.m. press conference today in front of Union Station.
