Transportation in the City Center — Past, Present, and Future
Saturday May 7, 3-4:30pm
State House side of railroad station in Providence
Corner of Dorrance and Clifford St.
Starting on the State House lawn just across the street from the train station on Gaspee St, participants will observe, consider and discuss, the history, current conditions – what works well and what does not — and the issues going forward about transportation in the downtown area. From the train station, the walk will proceed through Kennedy Plaza to the proposed location of a new downtown bus hub at Dorrance and Clifford Streets where the walk ends.

Barry Schiller, a life-long transit rider, motorist, and bicyclist, served on the RIPTA Board of Directors and the state’s Transportation Advisory Committee.
