Lt. Governor rides the bus

On her Facebook page this morning, Lt. Governor Elizabeth Roberts lets us know she’s riding the bus.

Nice to see transit has an advocate on Smith Hill. Keep riding Elizabeth and work to strengthen our transit system and our economy. [Like]

  • Reading what I wrote it sounds sarcastic as if I assume that’s the first and only time she’s ever used RIPTA. I’m actually curious how often she rides the bus.

  • She has an office at Hope Artiste Village, I’ve seen her park her car on my street.

    That was a double-take Rhode Island moment. Why is the Lt. Governor walking down my street at 11am?

    Anyway, I’m not sure how often she rides, but it takes about the same amount of time to take RIPTA as it does to drive and park if you’re headed downtown from this neighborhood. If you’re a mobile-web person or you’re on a call, it can make sense to hop the bus, even if you have a car.
