NASHUA, N.H. (AP) - The New Hampshire Department of Transportation is holding a public meeting next month to seek input on a set of transportation alternatives to improve bus and rail service between Concord and Boston.

The Nov. 20 meeting will be held at Nashua Public Library from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

The department is evaluating opportunities to improve inter-city rail and transit service through a study jointly funded by the Federal Transit Administration and the Federal Railroad Administration. It was approved by New Hampshire’s Executive Council in February 2013.

The study will examine rail and bus transit options and intercity rail alternatives to address transportation, economic development, sustainability, quality of life and environmental issues along the Interstate 93 and Everett Turnpike corridors from Concord to Nashua, with connections to Boston.
