Transit and Paratransit Planning

The Planning Commission continues to work to establish a meaningful role in Regional transit and paratransit planning as a component of our overall transportation planning program.  Below are descriptions of planning efforts over the last 10 years.

Coordinated Community Transportation Planning (2006-ongoing):

SWRPC plays the role of facilitator  in the Region to improve the existing system so that it is a more "responsive, comprehensive, and coordinated community transportation system."  Stakeholders from the Southwest Region are working in conjunction with federal and state government towards this goal.  In 2006, SWRPC worked with stakeholders to produce a Coordinated Community Transportation Plan to identify community transportation needs and goals for implementation to address those needs.  SWRPC is currently working on a project to enhance the original Coordinated Community Transportation Plan with additional information to guide future planning efforts as well as developing a Regional Coordinating Council to guide future coordination activity in the Contoocook Valley area.

Southern NH Route 10 Job Access Reverse Commute Project (2008-ongoing):

In December 2008, SWRPC and an Advisory Committee wrapped up a project to understand the feasibility of providing commuter services for residents living near the Route 10 Corridor in West Swanzey and Winchester.  SWRPC is currently working with transportation agencies to design a new service and secure funding for the project.

NH Route 119 Transit Expansion Feasibility Study (2008-ongoing):

In December 2008, SWRPC and an Advisory Committee began a study to examine the feasiblity of expanding transit on the Route 119 Corridor in Hinsdale and Winchester from the Town of Brattleboro, Vermont where there are several active transit services including the BeeLine Bus, the MOOver Bus, the Connecticut River Transit, Amtrak, Greyhound and other transit-related options.
