If you haven’t been to the airport lately, you may not realize that the Intermodal Facility at the airport is actually well underway. The project includes a new rail station across Post Road from the airport. The station is currently set to serve MBTA commuter rail trains between the airport and Providence & Boston. Also at the station will be rental car facilities relocated from the airport, a parking garage for the rental fleets and commuter rail passengers, a RIPTA bus station and room for interstate buses. All of this will be connected to the airport terminal with a 1,250 foot skybridge with moving sidewalks over Post Road.
This reader submitted photo (from mid-December) shows the path of the skywalk from the terminal across the parking lots toward Post Road:
MBTA commuter rail service from T.F. Green is scheduled to begin in late 2010. Initially, 8 of the 15 round trips per day that currently serve Providence will be extended south to Warwick.
