Approaching the city
Boston's Logan International Airport, an hour's drive to the southeast, provides full commercial and freight air service.
Regularly scheduled buses travel between Nashua and Logan daily. Just outside Nashua's northwestern city limit is Nashua Airport, which is a noncommercial air field. Manchester Airport, about 25 minutes from Nashua, has daily connections to major cities.
The Nashua area is the starting point for two of the state's major four-lane highways, U.S. Route 3 and Interstate-93. Route 3, the F.E. Everett Turnpike, runs north-south through the western portion of the city. I-93 passes by the city to the east and is connected to Nashua by the east-west traveling New Hampshire Route 111.
Traveling in the City
Nashua's Main Street runs north-south through downtown, while the major east-west surface street is Hollis Street. Traffic is heavy due to unprecedented population growth. In-town bus service is provided by the Nashua Transit System (NTS). Six fixed "City Bus" routes cover the city's most populous neighborhoods and most commercial and industrial areas. Residents with special mobility needs may utilize the NTS's Citylift program. Plans call for a commuter rail service to be instituted between Nashua and Lowell, Massachusetts, and thence to Boston. A Nashua station site is planned for the end of E. Spit Brook Road.
