Rhode Island Public Transit Authority to hold public hearings on proposed service changes

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE) — The Rhode Island Public Transportation Authority will hold public hearings on proposed service changes beginning Monday.

The first of six meetings will be held at the Community College of Rhode Island Knight Campus in Warwick at noon.

Changes being proposed include increasing service frequency, expanding service area, and a route elimination.

RIPTA will also propose adding three new routes. One of these new routes would connect CCRI to the Centre of New England in Coventry.

Public input will be sent to RIPTA’s board of directors before they vote on the changes next Wednesday.
