Public Transportation: CART, MBTA, NHRTA project
The main source of public transportation in Salem is The Cooperative Alliance for Transportation (CART) , which is a system of buses with set routes through Salem and surrounding towns. CART offers shared-ride, curb-to-curb service including a Salem Shopper Shuttle that operates three days a week from 9:15 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. CART is a free service but donations are welcome. The shuttle can pick you up if you live within 3/4 mile of a planned route and call ahead to schedule the stop. Planned shuttle routes take passengers to grocery stores, plazas and a Boston Express Park & Ride stop.
Accessing the commuter rail system of MBTA requires a short 15 minute trip across the state border to Haverhill, MA. From there you can take the train to one of the stops along the way including Lawrence and Reading or ride it all the way into Boston’s North Station. From North Station all the pleasures of Boston are only a T trip away.
The New Hampshire Rail Transit Authority (NHRTA) is overseeing the creation of a commuter rail in New Hampshire to address the need for a balanced transportation infrastructure. Supporting the efforts of NHRTA is The New Hampshire Railroad Revitalization Association or NHRRA, which seeks to preserve and revitalize New England’s historic railroads to be used for 21st century transportation. The successful completion of this proposed rail project would create passenger rail service to key parts of New Hampshire.
