Hamden Donates Bus Shelter to Davenport Residences

Hamden – Mayor Curt Balzano Leng is pleased to announce that the Hamden Legislative Council recently authorized the Town to donate a bus shelter to Davenport Residences, Inc. and provide service for installation. Davenport Residences will be responsible for the regular maintenance, care and repair of the bus shelter once installed. The new shelter provides hundreds of residents with a safe, more convenient way to use needed transportation services close to home.

The bus shelter is for the benefit of the public, and was donated to Daveport Residences after numerous requests from residents in the facility and the surrounding area. The new shelter, once constructed, will provide reprieve from harsh weather conditions as travelers wait for transportation.

Commenting, Mayor Curt Leng noted, “This is an example of a simple gesture, with a small cost, that delivers a big impact. Folks at Davenport Residents, and in the neighborhood, won’t have to wait in the rain, wind, and snow for the bus any-longer, and that’s a big deal. Thank you to the Legislative Council for approving this donation, to the administrators of Davenport and the Davenport-Dunbar Resident Council for identifying this need and taking care of maintenance, and to my staff for working to make this possible.”


For further information, please contact Deputy Chief of Staff, Patrick J. Donnelly, at 203-287-7009 or at pdonnelly@hamden.com.
