Transportation Map, New England, February 26, 2015MassDOT today announced release of the first ever comprehensive New England Regional Transportation Maps. These maps show all privately operated rail, bus, and ferry service across New England and connecting services to New York State.

MassDOT’s Rail & Transit Division developed the maps in coordination with regional departments of transportation, including Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Connecticut, Rhode Island, and New York.

“We are pleased to work with our partners across New England and New York in delivering customer focused maps that assist commuters and visitors in making smart and convenient travel choices across our region,” said MassDOT Secretary and CEO Stephanie Pollack.

“These maps are the only place where the public can view all intercity transportation services in a single document,” said MassDOT Rail & Transit Administrator Dr. Beverly Scott. “We thank our regional transportation partners for working with us to ensure the available services are easy to find and easy to use.”

The maps are the first multi-state, multi-modal public use transportation maps available in the U.S. Multiple language translations have been included on each map to further enhance usability.

Available maps and distribution include the following:

• Fold-out tourist maps, which include a comprehensive New England service map and specific route information will be distributed through a collaborative effort with the tourism office in each state.

• Separate large-scale maps of each state have been created for display in major transportation terminals throughout New England.

• A web-based version will be available on the MassDOT Transit page in the future allowing users to search individual route information by stop location.

The maps are currently being displayed in the Boston South Station Bus Terminal and will be added to regional transportation centers across New England over the coming weeks. The maps were prepared by the Central Transportation Planning Staff (CTPS) in Boston.
