RIPTA Announces First Steps for Modern Transit Hub in Downtown Providence

Here’s a good idea for Downtown Providence – a new, state-of-the-art, central location for RIPTA bus service that’s actually inside. Add plenty of amenities for travelers, including more benches, restroom access, expanded customer service and much more – and you have the proposed Dorrance Street Transit Center. The new bus depot would replace Kennedy Plaza.

Announced last week by Gov. Dan McKee and the Rhode Island Public Transit Authority (RIPTA), the new center is envisioned to include commercial and business space along with new, downtown residential space on the top floors.

As an initial step, RIPTA issued a Request for Expressions of Interest (REOI) that provides useful background about the project and is designed to tap the expertise of private developers from across the country about how best to realize the potential of the new transportation center.

"The Dorrance Street Transit Center is one more important part of our commitment to restore and revitalize Downtown Providence while we create the best possible transit experience for riders,” Governor McKee said.

Grey Sail launches Canal Street, a new crushable ale 

Just in time for summer, Grey Sail Brewing of Rhode Island has unveiled a new libation: Canal Street, a Kolsch-inspired ale. Brewed as a lighter, ultimately "crushable" offering, Canal Street Ale is made with high-quality German ingredients that create a clean, crisp drinking experience. 

At only 3.9% ABV and 110 calories, Canal Street's spring/summer debut is no accident—it's brewed with long, sunny days in mind. The new brew was inspired by the home of the brewery in Westerly, an old macaroni factory on … Canal Street. 

Canal Street Launch Party, June 11, 1-8 pm. Music by No Exit 4 from 1-4 pm and Ain’t No Sin from 4-7 pm.
