Clipper Connection Route 101

Route 101 is our commuter express route connecting Dover to the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard.

The morning bus originates on NH 155 (Knox Marsh Rd.) near the Lilac Garden apartment complex.  The bus services the existing Wildcat Transit stops at Westgate Village and Bellamy Common before heading directly to Shaw's plaza (pick up behind Friendly's).  From there, the bus picks up at existing 2S stops on Central Avenue as far as CVS, then proceeds directly to the Navy Yard.  The bus drops off near the Navy Yard on Government Street, just outside of Gate 1.

The afternoon bus picks up at the Navy Yard in front of Building 86 at 3:40 PM.  From there, the bus proceeds directly to Dover with drop-offs starting at Pine Hill Cemetery across from CVS.  The bus drops off at select stops along Central Avenue until reaching Shaw's plaza, then drops off on NH 155.

Connections to and from Portsmouth are available via Route 41cc, which picks up at the Navy Yard at 6:38 AM and returns there from Market Square at 3:25 PM.
