RIPTA & the City of Providence Initiate the Providence Core Connector Study

RIPTA is partnering with the City of Providence to examine the feasibility, cost and benefits of improving transit within the central core of the City, connecting the College Hill, Downtown and Upper South Providence neighborhoods. The study will examine options for connecting the significant educational, medical, employment and cultural destinations in this corridor with the central bus hub in Kennedy Plaza and rail services at the Providence MBTA/Amtrak station.

Members of the public are encouraged to attend one of three community open houses in September to help plan how transit might improve mobility and strengthen Downtown, Upper South Providence, and College Hill.
