$15 Providence to NYC Moving Sale
Peter Pan Bus Lines to move bus stops and ticket counters from Kennedy Plaza to the Rhode Island Convention Center on Monday, May 15, 2017. To celebrate our move Peter Pan Bus Lines will be offering $15 fares on all trips from Providence to New York City from May 15 through May 24, 2017.
“RIPTA was pleased to work with the Convention Center and the private carriers in making this transition to Sabin Street,” said Ray Studley, CEO of RIPTA. “This move will not only reduce the bus presence in Kennedy Plaza, but will allow Peter Pan and Greyhound to continue to provide safe, efficient and comfortable accommodations for their customers. This is another example of RIPTA’s efforts to assist the City and the State in creating a more community-oriented Kennedy Plaza – one that will allow accessible public transit use, but also provide civic opportunities for the downtown community.”
Governor Gina Raimondo said, “This announcement is an important sign of progress toward our goal of reducing the number of buses in Kennedy Plaza. I am grateful to RIPTA, Peter Pan and Greyhound for working collaboratively to make this a smooth transition.”
