Public Workshop On Core Connector Study Monday

bus stop RIPTA and the city of Providence are evaluating a potential new transit route through Providence’s downtown core. Also under consideration are the feasibility, cost and benefits of introducing either a streetcar (yay!) or enhanced bus service along a new Core Connector route.

This Core Connector route would connect significant educational, medical, employment and cultural destinations in Providence with the central bus hub in Kennedy Plaza and rail services at the train station.

We will be sharing recent findings at an upcoming Core Connector Workshop:Members of the public are encouraged to drop in and learn more about the technical aspects of the study. Information to be shared includes local street design requirements, station locations, potential environmental impacts, and traffic and parking considerations. Additionally, we are looking to determine how a major transit investment could impact development patterns in the downtown core and to identify financing options to build and support the new service.

Drop by the workshop for more information, including a map of the route, project fact sheets and other background materials. More info at Core Connector Study.

Public Workshop, 4:30pm to 6pm, Monday, April 25, Commerce Center, 30 Exchange Terrace, 1st Floor Conference Room
