No train service Monday, it was all in our imagination, and in a .pdf schedule released by the T. See all the details on the drama here.
It is not the perfect schedule by far, but it is a start.
Trains will begin running to the new station at T.F. Green on Monday.
Weekday only service is scheduled as follows:
|T.F. Green||Providence||South Station|
|South Station||Providence||T.F. Green|
As expected, these hours are largely beneficial for a commuter from the Warwick/South County area to Boston. There are also reverse commuting options from Providence to the airport. I believe those are partially intended to allow airport workers to reverse commute down to the airport and may serve some utility for passengers grabbing shuttle flights in the early morning.
But I suspect looking at this schedule most will complain about the cost of the station for such a meager offering of service. All that can be said is this is preliminary service; service will expand when the Wickford Junction Station opens late next year.

It is indeed just a start and it will take some time for it to expand/improve, but it will.
