Temporary Statewide Service Reductions Due to Historic Workforce Shortage

RIPTA, like other transit agencies nationwide, is facing a critical shortage of staff necessary to maintain daily transportation service.  With the ongoing shortage of bus drivers, we are forced to temporarily reduce service levels, beginning Saturday, October 22, 2022. RIPTA will reinstate service levels as they are currently scheduled as soon as manpower permits.

Routes 17, 19, 21, 22, 27, 28, 31, 50, 51, 54, 55, 56, 57, 60, 63, 65X, 72, 87, and 92 will be affected.  Please note that early morning, night, weekend and holiday service has not been impacted. RIPTA is not eliminating any routes.

Temporarily reducing service to match our current staffing levels means that riders will encounter fewer canceled trips as we will be able to run service truer to schedule.

RIPTA will also make changes to Routes 13, 29, 67 and 92 as part of its annual fall service changes. RIPTA regularly makes service adjustments three times a year in response to seasonal changes and/or passenger use.
