Lawmakers eye RIPTA service to Fall River

Posted 4/1/13

PROVIDENCE – Four state legislators representing Aquidneck Island communities have sent a letter to the Rhode Island congressional delegation, requesting assistance in allowing the R.I. Public Transit Authority to receive a waiver of insurance for interstate travel between Rhode Island and Massachusetts, a move that could bring limited service to Fall River.

The legislators are Rep. John G. Edwards, D-Portsmouth, Rep. Dennis M. Canario, D-Portsmouth, Sen. Christopher S. Ottiano, R-Portsmouth, and Sen. Walter S. Felag Jr., D-Warren. They have been engaging in discussions with RIPTA for the past year with the hope that the authority will return service to Tiverton. The discussion has included a proposal to create a more profitable route that could connect to a Massachusetts bus line in Fall River, which RIPTA officials say requires a waiver at the federal level. •
