ecoRI News: Transit Advocates Rally Support for Question 6

yes-on-6-rally

At a Monday morning press conference at the decaying Amtrak Station Public Plaza, civic, business and labor leaders joined voices supporting Question 6, a $35 million transit bond on the Nov. 4 ballot that they consider critical to Rhode Island’s economic health.

By connecting downtown with regional and national transportation lines and making systems more attractive and useable, proponents are banking on trends that show that efficient, effective and reliable public transportation is used by increasingly larger segments of the population. It also improves air quality, cuts carbon emissions and reduces congestion.

  • I would like to see with Question 6 in Rhode Island would help bring back RIPTA Ferry Service between Warrick-TF Green Airport, Prudence Island, Hog Island & Newport as a partnership with the Rhode Island Department of Transportation, Public Transit Authority, Airport Cooperation at TF Green Airport & Interstate Navigation-Block Island Ferry and Commuter Rail Service between Woonsocket, Pawtucket Providence, TF Green Airport, Quonset Point, Kingston & Westerly between the Rhode Island Department of Transportation, Public Transit Authority, Airport Cooperation at TF Green Airport & Providence & Worcester Railroad.
