Improvements to the existing River Route Service, which provides access to employment, shopping, and other services in White River Junction, and Hanover-Lebanon NH, include:

  • Provides More Trips for Everyone: Late morning and mid-day trips have been added to provide more access for everyone.
  • Provides New Service to Centerra Business Park: Trips to operate via Centerra Parkway across NH 120 from the DHMC campus to accommodate requests from current riders.
  • Reverse Commute Service: Adds AM northbound and PM southbound trips to the timetable to provide customers with more travel opportunities.
  • Provides More Trips to VA Medical Center: Daily service to VA Medical Center increases to eight trips (presently two trips).
  • Simplifies Routing: All trips to follow a common alignment that is consistent with market demand and minimizing onboard travel times for most customers.

Concurrently, Stagecoach will launch The Circulator, a new deviated fixed-route service, which will run Monday-Friday between 8:30 and 3:15 providing local service to Bradford, Newbury, Wells River, and Woodsville.  The Circulator will:

  • Creates: New consistent, local service for the community.
  • Expands: Senior citizens and people with disabilities will have more access to essential trips to the grocery store, pharmacy and personal trips in addition to those presently made to the Senior Center and Upper Valley Services.
  • Connects: Anyone can use this service to connect with the River Route for access to the Upper Valley and beyond.
