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.

This is a hospital-based, adult and pediatric critical-care transport ambulance from Rhode Island Hospital and Hasbro Children's Hospital which is the pediatric division of Rhode Island Hospital, and named after the Hasbro toy company that donated lots of money to the hospital when it was founded in 1994. This transport ambulance is seen here on Ruggles Street crossing Huntington Avenue in Boston, most likely on its way to Boston Children's Hospital after driving up from Rhode Island on I-95 and I-93. The white Jeep is clearly following the ambulance but this is not only extremely dangerous, it is also illegal in Massachusetts to follow within 300 feet of any emergency vehicle (Part I, Title XIV, Chapter 89, Section 7A).

One of the most crucial components of a healthy economy and quality of place is a sound transportation system: one that supports diverse modes of travel and seamlessly connects Rhode Island to the rest of the world – and Rhode Islanders, more meaningfully to each other and to opportunity.

"I do traffic differently." That's what retired police officer Tony Lepore, better known as the "Dancing Cop," told the Boston Globe in 2011. Lepore has gained Internet fame over the last few years for his disco and salsa moves that he busts out during rush-hour traffic in Providence, R.I. Now, Lepore is back in action, the Providence Journal reports. And we couldn't be more thrilled. The 66-year-old has been dancing in the streets since 1984, according to the Associated Press. After he retired, the city invited him back to direct traffic during the holidays. He was sworn in again in 1992 and has been delighting locals with his dancing every holiday season since. This year, Lepore will be showing off his best moves on weekdays from noon to 1:30 p.m. through Christmas Eve, according to...
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. This specially operated train used MBTA equipment, with an MBTA crew, operating over Seaview Transportation tracks, with a Seaview pilot. For air show attendees, this train was a welcoming alternative to driving, which had caused many headaches for them, as parking took a long time, as did leaving the parking lot at the conclusion of the show. This train was free of charge for riders, and parking at the Providence State Offices, as well as t...
Uptake has recently launched into the smart cities category through our work with the Rhode Island Public Transit Authority (RIPTA). RIPTA provides bus and other non-rail services for the state of Rhode Island. RIPTA has been working toward a shift to an agile form of “smart transit” that is prepared for the industry and cultural challenges that are beginning to impact public transit. Uptake’s ability to harness massive data sets and perform meaningful analytics against them – the foundation of “smart transit” – is driving this transformation. Together, Uptake and RIPTA are aiming to increase RIPTA’s overall efficiency (think: maintenance, operations), bus reliability, bus uptime and safety. Uptake will do this by providing fleet insights – such as visibility into bus vitals and perfor...
