Due to extreme cold weather, the Rhode Island Public Transit Authority (RIPTA) is extending the hours of operation at the Kennedy Plaza Intermodal Transportation Center this week.
In order to give passengers a place to stay warm while waiting for their buses, the building will be open until 10pm beginning Thursday, December 15, and continuing through Friday, December 16, 2016. The building is normally open 6am to 7pm.
The hours for the Ticket Window will not be extended during this time, and the window will be staffed during its normal weekday hours of 7am to 6pm.
People seeking more information on warming centers in their local communities can check a list being compiled by the Rhode Island Emergency Management Agency (RIEMA) at www.riema.ri.gov
