Community Meeting – Transportation Corridors to Livable Communities Project – Broad Street and Elmwood Avenue

The City of Providence and the Rhode Island Public Transit Authority (RIPTA) invite you to share your thoughts on the future of Broad Street and Elmwood Avenue.

Southside Cultural Center, 393 Broad Street
(formerly Trinity Community Theater)
Wednesday, May 30, 2012 – 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM
(Presentation at 6:00 PM followed by open house)

  • How is RIPTA improving bus stop locations, bus shelters, and bus service along routes 11 and 20?
  • What is RIPTA’s new R-Line (Rapid Bus) service?
  • What improvements are coming? (bus shelters, trash cans, bicycle racks, wayfinding signage, public art)
  • Where should community hubs and gateways be located?
  • What services and businesses would you like to see along Broad and Elmwood?

The City of Providence and RIPTA have been awarded a Community Planning Challenge Grant through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Office of Sustainable Housing and Communities to conduct the Transportation Corridors to Livable Communities study. Focusing on the highest ridership bus routes in the city | Broad Street, North Main Street, Elmwood Avenue, Chalkstone Avenue, and Manton Avenue | the City and RIPTA are working together to improve transit service, enhance bus stops and other pedestrian amenities, and encourage the development of mixed-income housing and opportunities for jobs and the arts near transit.

For more information, please contact Martina Haggerty, Project Coordinator or visit the project website.

Please join us on May 30th to hear more about this exciting project and to share your thoughts.
