Attend an open house for the Providence Core Connector Study

RIPTA and the City of Providence will be hosting three open houses on September 21, 22 and 23 to engage the public in the Core Connector Study.

The Core Connector Study is a partnership between RIPTA and 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 the community open houses in September to help plan how transit might improve mobility and strengthen Downtown, Upper South Providence, and College Hill.
