To get from the station to ASD in West Hartford, go to the south end of the station and and turn left on Asylum Avenue, proceeding one block to the nearest Connecticut Transit bus stop. Either the E2 Bishops Corner or the A2 Fern Street will bring you close to ASD. The A2 runs every half hour at both rush hours and every hour the rest of the day. It drops you at the corner of Fern and North Main Streets -- you must walk a block to the north to get to the school. The E2 runs every half hour all day, and drops you in front of the school, but is slower. For detailed schedules see http://www.cttransit.com/RoutesSchedules/index.asp

If you have any difficulty, please call the school at
(860) 570-2300 (Voice) or (860) 899-1217 (Videophone).
