Public calls for transportation options

blnmc_basemapAround 35 people gathered for a meeting in Manchester Town Hall last night to hear representatives from New Hampshire Department of Transportation and the consulting firm URS speak about the NH Capitol Corridor Rail and Transit Study and take public comments about the level of desire for transportation options such as passenger rail and intercity bus transit.

Comments were unanimously in favor of having options, especially rail.  Many felt that having rail service would make New Hampshire more economically competitive and attract young professionals to live in New Hampshire cities.

For more information, see the NH Capitol Corridor website, or contact Mark Sanborn – Federal Liaison, NHDOT.
