Park and rides in New Hampshire are intermodal facilities or places where people arrive by one mode of transportation, convene with or separate from others, and leave by a different transportation mode, such as by carpool or bus. A park and ride may be as simple as a convenient location where commuters meet or a designated parking lot at a bus station.
Like transit service, bike lanes or sidewalks, park and ride lots help increase the flexibility of the transportation system, allowing users more transport options to fit their lifestyle. Park and rides can also help users avoid excessive transportation costs.
The Park and Ride Toolkit was developed by Southwest Region Planning Commission, Strafford Regional Planning Commission, and Central New Hampshire Regional Planning Commission. It was made possible through funding provided by the NH Department of Transportation (NHDOT), US Department of Transportation Federal Highway Administration, and the support of NHDOT, local transit agency staff, and the State Park and Ride Advisory Committee. It The Park and Ride Toolkit lays out the criteria and processes required to establish a park and ride facility that meets local and regional transportation needs. It is a guide and resource to drive the park and ride planning and implementation process forward in an efficient and organized manner.⬟
