Welcome to the home of the Rhode Island Transit Master Plan (TMP)! The Project Team (RIPTA, RIDOT, and RI Statewide Planning) will be using this website, and other tools, to engage and communicate with project stakeholders and the public. We look forward to providing updates on project happenings and progress. If you have any comments or questions, please share them with us here. We will compile your comments and review them with the Project Team.

Transit Master Plan

The Transit Master Plan will envision how our passenger transportation network should look and operate in the future. In Rhode Island, our passenger transportation network currently includes bus, rail and water transportation services. The Transit Master Plan will envision how this network should be enhanced and further developed to best meet the travel needs of the state's residents, workers and visitors. To develop this plan, we will use data, public input, stakeholder feedback and more. Both short-term and long-term projects will be proposed, as well as an implementation strategy identifying potential partnerships, policies and needed investments.
