In a recent Boston Globe article, the author relates a story of how bicycling is becoming so popular in Boston, people are actually having trouble finding a parking place for their bicycles.  That’s a delightful problem to have, because it’s so much easier and less expensive to solve than parking problems for cars.  And bicycle parking problems don’t come with companion problems such as congestion, poor air quality and storm water runoff issues from impermeable car parking lots.

Concord to Boston Transportation Options

Public Meeting to Discuss Transportation Options

7:00 pm on June 5th in Manchester

The New Hampshire Department of Transportation (NHDOT) has announced a public meeting on Wednesday, June 5, 2013 in Manchester to receive input and discuss transportation needs, and preferences for solutions that involve bus and rail options for a 73-mile corridor between Concord, New Hampshire and Boston, Massachusetts.

The June 5th public meeting will be held at Manchester City Hall, beginning at 7:00 pm.

The NHDOT is evaluating opportunities to improve inter-city transit service along the corridor through a study funded jointly by the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) and the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA).

The NH Capitol Corridor Rail and Transit Study will examine rail and bus options to address transportation, economic development, sustainability, quality of life, and environmental issues along the I-93 and Everett Turnpike corridors from Concord to Nashua, with connections to Boston.
