Our name stands for “Cooperative Alliance for Seacoast Transportation”. We provide and promote public transportation in the Seacoast region of New Hampshire. We’ve been working on that mission since 1981, making cooperative agreements with communities and local organizations to create a regional network for transportation.
In other words, at the base of everything we do, we operate more than nine regular bus routes throughout the region. If you’re familiar with the Boston area, it’s a little like a very very small version of the MBTA. However small, we still have big ambitions, which you’ll see as soon as you set foot in a COAST bus. We run modern, reliable, and clean vehicles, driven by skilled and thoroughly trained bus operators.
Our regular bus routes aren’t the only part of our mission, either. We also work with local organizations to develop long-range transportation plans, promote the use of alternative modes of travel, and change attitudes around the state in favor of public transit as a responsible and practical investment.
