Survey finds wide support for New Hampshire commuter rail

CONCORD — A new poll indicates a large percentage of Granite State residents favor passenger train service between Boston and southern New Hampshire.

The Saint Anselm College Survey Center poll found 75.5% of residents surveyed said they are in support of expanding passenger rail service to Boston from Manchester and Nashua, according to a release Monday from New Hampshire Businesses for Rail Expansion, a statewide, nonpartisan business coalition that launched in January 2018.

“With more than 110 statewide businesses and now three-quarters of residents indicating their support, it is time for policymakers to act and take the next step in expanding rail and realizing the vast economic benefits it would deliver,” E.J. Powers, a spokesman for the group, said in the release.

The release of the study came two days before a legislative committee is scheduled to discuss a funding bill approved by the New Hampshire Senate in February.
