Transportation in Nashua

Creating a Cleaner, More Connected City

The U.S. Department of Transportation estimates that daily household vehicle trips range from a high of 59 miles per day in the least dense (suburban) parts of the community to only 13 miles per day in the downtown. The City aims to decrease these numbers in Nashua by shortening distances that residents must travel to get to daily destinations while encouraging the transition to EVs and other modes of transportation.
