The Rhode Island Public Transit Authority is considering changes to its bus service and wants the public to weigh in. The transit authority is considering two alternatives to how it’s running now.
RIPTA marketing director Amy Pettine says the changes won’t add costs to running the transit system, but could expand service in some much-needed parts of the state. She says this includes a new route proposed for Woonsocket and better coordination with commuter rail.
The Rhode Island Public Transit Authority is still detouring 12 of its bus routes due to the aftermath of last weekend’s snow storm. On its website RIPTA says the affected routes will remain detoured until further notice. You can see the latest information provided by RIPTA here.
