The recent storms are forcing RIPTA to make detours. Starting today, seven bus routes will be detoured until further notice.

RIPTA says it's just too dangerous to pick up and drop off passengers on the roads with all the snow and snow banks that have been left behind.'

"Our supervisors go out there regularly.  They go out early in the morning and they stay out there during the day to reassess all the routes and establish detours that work around the storm," said James Tierney, RIPTA Dir. of Operations.
