This page is your guide to and resource for information about the Portland North Alternative Modes Transportation Study, or the "Portland North" project for short. In this study, the Maine Department of Transportation (MaineDOT) is considering implementing either rail or Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) service between Portland and destinations north of Portland. Bus service would be provided in the I-295 and I-95 corridors, and the following three rail corridors will be analyzed for potential funding under the Federal Transit Administration's (FTA) Small Starts program:

  1. Portland to Yarmouth
  2. Portland to Brunswick
  3. Portland to Auburn

The study will evaluate each corridor, route, transit mode, and service alternative to identify the option that ranks the highest according to FTA criteria. The Small Starts analysis will also meet requirements outlined in the National Environmental Policy Act and in the Clean Water Act.
