FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn. -- Are you fed up with commuting headaches and transportation problems in Connecticut? U.S. Sen. Chris Murphy has launched a new campaign and online survey — "Fed Up" — to hear from commuters about why they’re ‘fed up’ with Connecticut’s traffic and poor transportation infrastructure.

Murphy (D-Conn.) is looking for feedback on how a shorter, more reliable commute could improve commerce, productivity, and quality of life for Connecticut commuters and residents.

“Connecticut traffic is a nightmare. I’ve heard from commuters all across the state, and they’re fed up. Traffic means stress. Congestion means being late for work. Delays mean missing dinner with your kids night after night,” he said.

As a member of the U.S. Senate Appropriations Transportation, Housing, and Urban Development, and Related Agencies Subcommittee, Murphy will take the feedback and stories back to Washington as he works to secure federal investments in rail and road improvements that support economic development and job creation throughout Connecticut.

“I want to hear from commuters around Connecticut about the nightmares of their daily commute – the challenges they face getting to work and to school, the valuable time and money lost because of delays," Murphy said.

Connecticut residents are encouraged to visit Murphy’s ‘Fed Up’ website and share their commuting experiences at murphy.senate.gov/fedup.
