RIPTA Bus Stop Design Guide Public Meetings – June 9, 15, & 20, 2016



The Rhode Island Public Transit Authority (RIPTA) is currently developing bus stop design guidelines for use by RIPTA, the Rhode Island Department of Transportation, municipalities and others, when roads with RIPTA bus routes are reconstructed or otherwise improved. Your input is valuable in helping shape a “complete streets” approach that enhances transit ridership through guidelines for urban, suburban and rural bus stops.

Three (3) open houses are scheduled in June to provide opportunity for input. Meetings are open to everyone from the general public, transit riders, municipal planning, engineering and public works departments, advocacy groups, A&E consultants, business groups, and developers. Meetings will include information on potential bus stop typologies.

We value your input! Come learn about bus stop concepts that could be implemented at RIPTA bus stops throughout Rhode Island, based on best practices throughout the US. Meet with design team members and RIPTA and RIDOT staff. Provide feedback on design, operations, and maintenance considerations. You are welcome to join us for all or a portion of the drop-in open house. The same information will be presented at each of the three workshops. For further information or to submit public comment, please contact Pam Sherrill, 401 749-1978 or

  • I hope that zoning ,street design and land use are taken into consideration. There needs to be a walkable environment surrounding bus stops.
