The Rhode Island Public Transit Authority is relocating bus stops in Kennedy Plaza to nearby locations while the plaza is being renovated. With many buses traveling in and out, Kennedy Plaza is currently the hub of bus transportation in the city.

The City of Providence plans to build a large civic space in the plaza and increase the efficiency of the bus stops and pedestrian walkways. The relocations will go into effect on Saturday, July 12th and will last until the work is completed in the fall.

The stops will be relocated to Exchange Terrace, Sabin Street, Exchange Street, Fountain Street, and Steeple Street. Ticketing will still be provided inside the Kennedy Plaza Terminal.
