Downtown Transit Connector (DTC) Community Update – March 5, 2018

In RIPTA by Greater City Providence6 Comments

The DTC will run from Rhode Island Hospital to the Providence Train Station and will include enhanced bus shelters with attractive passenger amenities such as seating and digital displays showing real time bus arrival data and other information. These new shelters will complement the City’s broader long-term vision for this area and its plan to convert Washington Street into a two-way, bus-only, transit way. The DTC stop at the Providence Train Station will be integrated into the State’s proposal to construct a new intermodal center there in order to better connect MBTA/Amtrak trains with local transit services.
