Bridgeport CT's original Municipal Bus Terminal is still standing today (as of Feb. 2016), a monument of the city's great transportation infrastructure has stood since before the 1950s (construction date unknown). While it remains a parking garage, it was once the hub of intermodal public transportation, surrounded by railroad and ferry terminals, and hosting bus services both regional and interstate. It was either a through-stop or terminating point for local carriers Gray Line Bus Co., Bpt. Auto Transit Co., and Chestnut Hill Bus Corp. (Only Stratford Bus Line Inc. and CT Railway And Lighting Co. - 'CR & L LInes' did not access the terminal.) Regional carriers to CT areas northwest and northeast were provided by Valley Transportation Inc. (to Waterbury), and by Chieppo Bus Co. (to Danbury). Interstate carriers included Adirondack Trailways, Bonanza Bus Lines, Continental Trailways, Greyhound, Peter Pan, and Vermont Trailways. Since the late 2000s, all bus transit modes stop or terminate at the new intermodal bus terminal on the site of the old railroad station 2 blocks north on Water Street.
