Connect TM (or CTM) is an organization that projects and builds connections between towns.
Its logo can be found on banners in Connect TM stations.
The organization has been founded on 30th April 2019 by nicosecci. After seeing the first line from Arensburg to BlackFall built by TommyJ2 and mishprsu, he started creating a project to connect the further town of Sillamae (which in the future would become the Red Line).
The Uzhitz conflict
After nicosecci created his own town, Uzhitz, he decided that the first line would have been inaugurated was the BlackFall-Uzhitz. Some conflicts occured between Terra Mariana and Greater Finland, so the project has been completely canceled.
Officialization by Terra Mariana government
After some weeks, on 21st June 2019, the RPCTMO (Rules of Participation to the Connect TM Organization) has been approved by the Terra Mariana Royal Council and on the same day, the Red Line (iceroad+railway) was opened, emblem of fast connections between Terra Mariana towns.
In July 2019, the CTM network has been expanded for the first time in a foreign country, the Kalmar Union, where now its headquarters are situated.
Second foreign expansion
To extend its network, a partnership has been created with the president of Godthab: RASPUTIN54. The latter has created a network of ice roads linking most of Greenland's cities and put this network under the authority of the CTM network.
