We invite you to learn about our campaign to re-introduce passenger rail service to key parts of our state. New Hampshire urgently needs a balanced, integrated, and socially and economically viable transportation infrastructure... and rail has a key part to play. A balanced emphasis on all transportation modes with well planned and strategically located trans-modal transportation centers is key to that realization.
The New Hampshire Railroad Revitalization Association (NHRRA) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit educational organization. We are dedicated to the preservation and revitalization of Northern New England's historic rail infrastructure as a viable component of its 21st century transportation system.
Our current project, which is likely to bring the most benefit to the most people, is commuter rail service between Boston and the communities of Nashua, Merrimack, Bedford, Manchester, Hooksett and Concord.
We support the efforts undertaken by Gov. John Lynch to create the New Hampshire Rail Transit Authority. We also support the efforts of the Regional Planning Commissions in Nashua, Manchester, and Concord to return passenger rail as they will also play a crucial role in further extending the passenger rail extension from Lowell to Concord, the N.H. Capitol Corridor.
However, a coordinated effort that educates local and state lawmakers, businesses and citizens on the critical need for this rail service needs to begin now. The NHRRA will work passionately to see that these efforts are undertaken, that all parties are held accountable, and that other vital regional rail - passenger and freight - initiatives are moving forward.
Through this site you can follow the progress of our campaign, and learn how to get involved and support the NHRRA.
