The Rhode Island Public Transit Authority is trying something new to make it easier for PawSox fans to get to McCoy Stadium.
For Sunday Home Games beginning May 19th, fans may be picked up at Kennedy Plaza in downtown Providence for the games. Regular one way fare is $2.00 and a total of $4.00 for a round trip. Fans may also buy regular monthly passes for $62.00. Twenty Minutes after the game, fans are able to catch a ride back to Kennedy plaza. RIPTA and the PawSox plan to continue to promote the service to fans during each game.
This afternoon, I joined RIPR’s All Things Considered host Dave Fallon to talk about what’s happening with hospital prices and something called “payment reform.” You can listen to a recording of that discussion here.
For those of you who want to dig in to the issue, here are links to a few reports, studies, and articles I found helpful. Please feel free to let me know about others.
