RIPTA restores service on some detoured routes
PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Rhode Island’s public transit system has restored service on some routes that were experiencing detours because of lingering effects from the weekend storm.
The Rhode Island Public Transit Authority said Thursday that accumulated snow in some areas and unplowed snow on secondary roads have made it hard for vehicles to travel safely in some cases.
Twelve RIPTA routes were on detours Wednesday. Six are now, including Routes 18, 28, 64, 67, 72 and 92. Some stops are not being served.
The agency is working to restore full service on all routes as conditions allow.
RIPTA suspended service over the weekend but was running most of its buses and trolleys starting Monday. Riders are being warned to expect delays on all routes.
