RIPTA restoring 100 daily runs with re-opening of Warwick Mall [Warwick Beacon]
I had no idea 100 trips ran to Warwick Mall, probably because that is the total of 3 different bus lines. There must be someway for RIPTA to make it more apparent that so many buses go to the mall.

Not just another strip mall [South County Independent]
Nice to see someone in South County editorializing against sprawl. However, it is maddening to learn that The Kingstown Road Special Management District prohibits drive-thru windows. Drive-thrus are banned in the sprawling hinterland of Peace Dale, but not on Hope Street in Providence. Ugh.
