NASHUA, N.H. (AP) - The mayor of Nashua says he will propose a partnership between the New Hampshire city and a private railroad company in order to offer a commuter rail service.

Mayor Jim Donchess said Friday he will bring forth a proposal to the Board of Aldermen that will enter the city into an agreement with the Boston Surface Railroad Co. The Nashua Telegraph reports (https://bit.ly/2jWs1vv ) Boston Surface will invest in creating a commuter rail line that connects Bedford and Nashua in New Hampshire to Lowell, Massachusetts.

Donchess says the service would come at no cost to the city, as it would be a public-private partnership. The commuter line would operate on a for-profit basis after it opens.
