The Rhode Island Public Transit Authority (RIPTA) has cancelled the community site visit scheduled for Friday, February 5, 2016 at the Mancini Center in North Providence due to the impending morning snowstorm.Every week, RIPTA’s Photo Identification staff travel to communities throughout the state to provide bus passes to qualified seniors and individuals with disabilities, who are unable to get to our office in downtown Providence. The Photo ID Office, which is open Monday through Thursday from 9 am to Noon and 1 pm to 4 pm, will be closed all day every Friday to provide photo identification “road trip” services around the state. The January – March 2016 road trip schedule is available at RIPTA.com.
Photo identification bus passes are available to seniors and other qualified individuals with valid documentation. Identification cards for people with disabilities and senior passes will cost $25.00 in 2016.
