Southern and Central New Hampshire, the I-93 Corridor, has developed rapidly during the past several decades, emerging from a pastoral rural setting to become an area of bedroom communities for the metropolitan regions of Boston, Manchester and Nashua. In fact, several communities in the corridor have developed economic bases of their own, further increasing pressure on the transportation infrastructure. This growth has led to increased concerns for safety and efficacy of the overall transportation system, and to plans to expand capacity.
The I-93 Transit Investment Study is intended to evaluate various transit alternatives in the travel corridor between Manchester and Boston. The study considered a range of bus and rail alternatives to help accommodate future travel demand on the corridor. Study documents are available on this site.
