About Us


Nashua Transit System (NTS) has been giving rides to the public since the Nashua Horse Drawn Railroad was started in 1886 (fares were a nickel then).
  • Nashua started running an electric trolley in 1895.
  • Busses replaced the trolley in 1931.
  • We started offering paratransit service in 1979.
  • In 1999, we opened the Transit Center on Elm Street.
  • In 2004, Metro Magazine named NTS as “one of the 10 Most Improved Transit Systems” in the USA.
  • In 2010, we rolled out a brand new website, featuring Google Transit (a first in New Hampshire).
  • In 2010, Milo the Meerkat joined the Nashua Transit System Team as the official mascot and Spokeskat.
