Wednesday, November 14, 2012

SALEM — A Salem transit company has won a $2.4 million contract from the state to provide van service from Manchester to Portsmouth over the next three years.

The deal will get Seacoast residents to Manchester-Boston Regional Airport as soon as next year, but also holds the promise of a commuter link among University of New Hampshire campuses and Amtrak’s Downeaster rail service, officials said.

Prices will be set later, but are expected to cost about $20 for a round-trip ticket from Portsmouth to the Manchester transit center or $38 to the airport, Flight Line president Jamie Dowd said yesterday.
