January 10, 2018

Press Releases

The Rhode Island Public Transit Authority (RIPTA) will implement winter service changes effective January 13, 2018.   RIPTA makes regular service adjustments several times a year in response to seasonal changes and/or passenger use. 

2018 Winter Service Changes

These annual changes are minor and include rescheduling for better on-time performance.  For many routes, only a slight trip time change occurred.  Route 19 (Plainfield/Westminster) will now deviate to Simmons Village on the 9:29am, 2:27pm Inbound trips and the 12:49pm outbound trip from Kennedy Plaza.

Passengers are strongly encouraged to check new schedules for how service changes may affect them.  They may also pick up the leaflet entitled Winter Service Changes Effective January 13, 2018 that is available at Kennedy Plaza; the leaflet is also viewable online.
