The Rhode Island Public Transit Authority (RIPTA) is planning on operating all regular service and RIde trips on Monday, February 2, 2015, but is advising riders to keep checking for detours and delays as a storm is expected to bring substantial snow to the state.
Updates will be posted on RIPTA’s website (www.ripta.com), Facebook (@RideRIPTA) and Twitter (@RIPTA_RI), and passengers are also asked to monitor news reports. In addition, riders are strongly urged to sign up for electronic News Updates at www.ripta.com/detours-news so they can receive emails notifying them of any service disruptions. Customers are advised to use extra caution at bus stops, as conditions may slippery.
As with last week’s storm, RIPTA will be working in the best interest of public safety in concert with Governor Raimondo’s office, the Rhode Island Department of Transportation (RIDOT) and the Rhode Island Emergency Management Agency (RIEMA).
