Clipper Connection Route 101

Route 101 is our commuter express route connecting Dover to the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard in Kittery.  We currently offer one AM run arriving at the Navy Yard just after 6:30 AM and a return trip departing from the Navy Yard at 3:40 PM.  Connections are available to and from Portsmouth and beyond at the Navy Yard.

Service runs along NH 155 (Knox Marsh Road) and from Friendly's/Shaw's Plaza to CVS utilizing our existing route 2 corridor (Central Avenue) in downtown Dover before proceeding directly to the Navy Yard, with reverse service in the afternoon.  For those unable to catch the 3:40 PM bus, we also offer a "late" route 2cc which picks up at the Navy Yard just after 5 PM.
