The Rhode Island Public Transit Authority (RIPTA) and the Rhode Island Department of Transportation (RIDOT) will host public meetings on proposed changes to bus service in downtown Providence on Thursday, February 24, Tuesday, March 8, and Monday, March 21, 2022.
In light of the City of Providence’s proposed changes to reimagine Kennedy Plaza, RIPTA and RIDOT will focus on the development of a new transit center on Dorrance Street. These public meetings are an opportunity for the public to submit their input on the development of this new transit facility.
“At the direction of Governor McKee, RIPTA will work with RIDOT on creating a new transit center focused on downtown bus service and the passenger experience,” said Scott Avedisian, Chief Executive Officer. “We’re extremely excited about the direction this project has taken, as it presents us with an opportunity to dramatically improve the passenger experience in downtown Providence that we have never had before.”
