We have made significant progress since the December public forum. After studying a range of potential routes through the downtown core, a route has been selected for further analysis. We are now considering different transit technology options (streetcar or bus), street design requirements, environmental impacts, traffic and parking considerations, and related issues. Additionally, we are looking at potential development impacts and financing options to determine how a major transit investment could impact development patterns in the downtown core.
We would like to share our recent findings with you at an upcoming Core Connector Workshop. Members of the public are encouraged to drop in and learn more about the technical aspects of the study:

We appreciate all the thoughtful comment and input the community has provided over the course of the project to-date. Please visit ProvidenceCoreConnector.com for more information, including a map of the route, a new fact sheet and technical documents.
