RIPTA to Hold Public Hearing on Proposed Service Change to Route 10x

Hearing Scheduled for March 1, 2023 in Foster

The Rhode Island Public Transit Authority (RIPTA) will hold a public hearing on a proposed service change to Route 10x (North Scituate Park-n-Ride) on Wednesday, March 1, 2023 in Foster. RIPTA is proposing to extend­ the route to serve a new Park-N-Ride lot in Foster, located across from the Foster Police Department on 182 Howard Hill Road.

RIPTA previously provided bus service to Foster via a Park-N-Ride lot on Danielson Pike.   That service ran until 2006, when the property was sold and the bus stop was removed. RIPTA was unable to successfully find another Park-N-Ride lot until recently. With the help of House Minority Leader Michael W. Chippendale, Senator Gordon E. Rogers and town officials, a lot on Howard Hill Road will be cleared for Park-N-Ride service in Foster Center.
