RIPTA makes fall service changes
RIPTA implements fall service changes, including route eliminations and time changes
PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) _ The Rhode Island Public Transit Authority has begun service changes that include route eliminations, bus time changes and the introduction of direct service between some points.
The agency that runs public bus and trolley service throughout Rhode Island makes seasonal adjustments three times a year. The fall service changes went into effect on Saturday.
Two dozen routes are affected by the changes, which also include route renaming and rescheduling for what officials say will be better on-time performance. Two routes, the 26 and the 53, have been eliminated.
These changes follow a comprehensive system-wide review of transit service throughout the state.
