By any measure, rail expansion has the support of New Hampshire’s public. In February 2014, a University of New Hampshire survey commissioned by the Greater Nashua Chamber of Commerce found that 68% of New Hampshire residents favor the extension of passenger rail service. Over half of New Hampshire residents still support rail even when told it would cost the state $100 million in initial costs and as much as $15 million annually (actual costs are projected to be much less). Rail expansion supporters believe strongly that connecting passenger rail from Boston to Concord, NH, is vital to New Hampshire’s continued economic development.

Supporters know expanded rail will mean fewer cars on the road, an additional efficient transit option, and a direct link between New Hampshire’s growing economic base and the talent pool in the Boston area.
