Dover Transportation Center is a train station in Dover, New Hampshire, United States, served by Amtrak, the national railroad passenger system. Despite the station house's old-fashioned appearance, it was actually built in 2001.
The station is located at 33 Chestnut Street in Dover, next to the Pan Am Railways mainline, formerly the Western Route mainline of the Boston & Maine Railroad (B&M). Prior to 1965, the B&M provided intercity passenger service from North Station in Boston to Portland, Maine, stopping at its own station in Dover en route; on 4 January 1965, all interstate service along the Western Route was discontinued except for a single daily round trip from North Station to Dover. This service ended on 30 June 1967, leaving Dover without passenger rail service until the start of Downeaster service in 2001.
The Dover station has volunteer "Station Hosts" organized by TrainRiders/Northeast. Station hosts serve to greet travelers and assist them as needed.
