HARTFORD (CBS Connecticut) _ Connecticut has unveiled it’s first new CT Fastrack bus.

With a Mystery Machine-feel, the green, sharply branded exterior was put on display outside the Hartford Hilton Friday.

It’s the first step in a three-part marketing plane to get people thinking about the busway, set to open in the first quarter of 2015.

“This new bus, the exterior design is now a rolling billboard, ” State Transit Administrator Michael Sanders said. “While the interior is not the same interior we will have on the new Fastrack buses, at least the exterior look will start getting people to think about the service.”

The newly branded bus will now be running in regular service.
