Passengers may board the “Special” RIPTA bus at the Newport Gateway Center to go to the Chowder-Cook-Off and then make their return trip at any of the scheduled times. Passengers will be dropped off and picked up at clearly marked Great Chowder Cook-Off bus stops, located at the Newport Gateway Center and Fort Adams State Park.
