The Rhode Island Public Transit Authority (RIPTA) announced that the Photo ID Office located inside the Kennedy Plaza Intermodal Transportation Center, will reopen one day a week, on Wednesdays, starting November 8, 2023. The Photo ID Office, where passengers can process their reduced fare bus pass applications, will be open on Wednesdays from 8am to 12pm and 1pm to 3pm.
The Photo ID Office at RIPTA Headquarters (705 Elmwood Avenue, Providence) will continue to be open to the public Monday through Friday from 8am-4pm (closed 12pm-1pm). Passengers who wish to process their bus pass applications online or via mail, can continue to do so. Visit RIPTA.com/ReducedFare for details.
In addition, in an effort to remove barriers to transportation, RIPTA Customer Service staff will continue to travel to communities throughout the state to provide bus passes to qualified seniors and individuals with disabilities. These statewide Photo ID community site visits allow residents in both rural and urban areas to access transit information and apply for the reduced fare bus pass program.
