PROVIDENCE – This is the last week of the free wintertime parking promotion at the commuter rail stations in Warwick and North Kingstown, Gov. Lincoln D. Chafee and the R.I. Department of Transportation are reminding commuters.
Since winter storm Nemo, which hit Rhode Island in early February, parking at the Interlink at T.F. Green Airport and at Wickford Junction Station in North Kingstown has been free to allow commuters to head into Providence more easily.
