December 2018  NEW!

Thank you to everyone who came out to join us at our first Public Workshop Series! We are thrilled to have met so many people in Providence, Woonsocket, and Newport during the first round of workshops. We are in the process of reviewing all of the feedback that we received and using it to inform and improve on our analyses. Check back again in the future as we begin releasing documents for comment and schedule future workshops.

September 2018

This summer the project team has been setting the foundation for the Transit Master Plan. This includes preparing a public involvement plan, introducing the project to the Rhode Island State Planning Council, and identifying key members of project, stakeholder, and leadership teams for the project and building a database of project stakeholders.

Throughout the summer and fall the Project Team met with many stakeholders to discuss the project, the goals and objectives, and priorities for consideration.

Lastly, the project team has been building its public engagement platforms including this website and a plan email address for comments TransitForwardRI@gmail.com. Please reach out to us via email or using the comment box on this website. Looking forward to continuing the conversation!
