Kennedy Plaza, in downtown Providence, serves as a transportation hub for local public transit as well as a departure point for Peter Pan and Greyhound bus lines. Public transit is managed by Rhode Island Public Transit Authority (RIPTA). Through RIPTA alone Kennedy Plaza serves over 71,000 people a day. The majority of the area covered by RIPTA is served by traditional buses. Of particular note is the East Side Trolley Tunnel running under College Hill, the use of which is reserved for RIPTA buses. RIPTA also operates the Providence LINK, a system of tourist trolleys in downtown Providence. From 2000 to 2008, RIPTA operated a seasonal ferry to Newport between May and October.

The Rhode Island Air Show train at the Circuit Drive crossing, in North Kingstown, RI, on Sunday May 12, 2016 On the weekend of June 11-12, the Rhode Island Department of Transportation (RIDOT) paid for the operation of a train that ran back and forth between Providence, TF Green Airport, and the Rhode Island Air Show at Quonset Point State Airport.
