A wish-list item for me would be for Waterfire to nights to have extended RIPTA, and have the Waterfire setup be such that it doesn’t detour bus routes. And Waterfire would be a perfect time for the city to try out buffered bike lanes, even if they’re not protected, in order to deal with traffic congestion.
