The Rhode Island Public Transit Authority (RIPTA) will waive the roundtrip fare on all service to South County Beaches on Route 66 (URI/Galilee) on Sunday, July 29, 2018 in celebration of Governor’s Bay Day. Fares will also be waived on RIPTA’s express Beach Bus which provides service from Central Falls, Cranston, North Providence, Pawtucket, Providence and Woonsocket to Salty Brine, Roger Wheeler (Sand Hill Cove) and Scarborough State Beaches in South County.
“Rhode Island’s beaches are some of the best in the world — after all, there’s a reason we’re called the Ocean State,” said Governor Gina M. Raimondo. “Bay Day is one of my favorite traditions that celebrates the best of our state–our beautiful parks and beaches, our thriving recreational fishing industry and our commitment to protecting our natural resources for future generations to enjoy. I hope Rhode Islanders come out to the beach on the 29th for a great Bay Day!”
For Governor’s Bay Day, free service to the beach on RIPTA will be provided on a first come, first served basis. For Route 66 schedule information, click here.
