With the news that the MBTA has suspended commuter rail service to the South Attleboro train station until further notice, the Rhode Island Public Transit Authority (RIPTA) is reminding passengers that they can use bus service to connect to commuter rail routes at Providence Station.  Also, RIPTA passengers who have previously used Routes 1 and 35 to travel to the South Attleboro station can instead take those routes southbound to Kennedy Plaza in downtown Providence.
