Statewide Strategic Transit Assessment Study

The State of New Hampshire (NH) has never conducted a comprehensive "Statewide Strategic Transit Assessment Study" and has not conducted an official "Intercity Bus & Intermodal Needs Assessment" since 2003. With limited federal and state dollars and mounting federal consultation and certification requirements, having a third-party Statewide Transit Needs Assessment conducted would assist the Department with long-term planning by assisting with funding projections and would help provide a statewide context and understanding of potential transit expansion priorities and capital/facility needs. Such a study would help the Department meet the Federal requirement under Title 49 U.S.C. 5311(f) to consult with intercity bus providers and ensure their needs are adequately met, which must be demonstrated through an assessment of statewide intercity mobility needs no more than four years before the date of the certification. This research will assist the Bureau of Rail & Transit by prioritizing future expansion corridors and projects and helping to shape RFPs or CMAQ applications submitted on behalf of the Department. The study will also assist Department staff involved in constructing new intermodal facilities (bus terminals and/or park & ride lots) through a reliable transit-related needs assessment to substantiate or help with prioritization of projects.
