Public Transportation plays a key role in addressing mobility, economic development, congestion, tourism, and air quality issues in northern New Hampshire. Our aging population is becoming more transportation-dependent, a challenge that is exacerbated by the rural nature of our region. North Country Council works with transportation providers and non-profit organizations to identify solutions to these challenges.
Our region’s public transportation needs are addressed with a variety of services and providers. There are nine bus routes that are open to the general public in our region, plus Door-To-Door services, volunteer-run medical trips programs, and private taxi and shuttle services. See the map at the bottom of the page to find a bus route near you.
The following is a list of transportation providers that operate in northern New Hampshire:
Operates the Berlin-Gorham Flex Route and the Tri-Town Flex Route. Also operates Door-To-Door, Care-A-Van, Long Distance Medical, and Medicaid transportation services in Coos, Carroll, and Northern Grafton Counties.
