Get Involved - Public Outreach Plan
A Public Involvement Plan was developed to outline how New Hampshire Department of Transportation, in cooperation with Massachusetts Executive Office of Transportation, and the project team will inform and seek input from the communities, residents, and traveling public. Many approaches were used to let people know what is happening throughout the study and there were numerous opportunities for discussion and comment. Public opinion and comments were documented and considered in the development of recommendations for transit alternatives.

Public Meetings -2008

I-93Two public meetings were held in October 2008 to review the findings and recommendations of the I-93 Transit Investment Study. The purpose of these meetings was to present the Draft Strategic Implementation Plan and address questions and comments on the recommendations from the general public. Read the official public meeting press release.

The two-year study has identified transit service opportunities within the I-93 Corridor between Boston, Massachusetts and Manchester, New Hampshire. The study team has analyzed a range of alternatives, including rail, bus, and ride-sharing. In addition, the study has reviewed local land use policies that impact on growth in the region and the potential for transit-friendly land use.
