The Rhode Island Public Transit Authority (RIPTA) will temporarily relocate all bus stops out of Kennedy Plaza beginning Saturday, July 12, 2014.

The City of Providence is making renovations on the plaza, creating a larger space, reorganizing bus berth locations, and improving pedestrian connections to and from the plaza.

The work is expected to be completed by Fall 2014.

All routes will be slightly detoured to avoid entering Kennedy Plaza. The bus stops will be relocated to Exchange Terrace, Sabin Street, Exchange Street, Fountain Street, and Steeple Street.

Park N’ Ride service will be relocated from Exchange Street to Sabin Street, but will continue to pick up passengers at other downtown locations.

Peter Pan and Greyhound passengers will continue to load and unload at their current stop in front of the Kennedy Plaza Terminal.

Ticketing and other passenger amenities will remain open inside the Kennedy Plaza Terminal during construction, as will RIPTA’s sales and information outlet. Customers are advised to enter through the side door on the Fulton Street side, near City Hall.

RIPTA passengers can find information on temporary bus stop locations on signs in the Plaza, on RIPTA buses, and on RIPTA’s website.
