A quick slightly tangential question - does the P&W have rights to run a passenger train over the Northeast Corridor? I know they have freight rights, but I wonder if they would have passenger rights?

They've said they want to investigate the possibility of running a passenger service between Providence and Worcester, but I haven't heard anything about that in a while.

first bids for actual construction are going out:

the work will be site prep and alteration of areas of the airport's short term lot for the support pedestals that will support the enclosed moving sidewalk connector between the airport and the new intermodal facility.

apparently I missed the first one, for the precast concrete that will make up the actual structure of the intermodal facility & parking garages - that one came out a few weeks ago...

I heard a rumor that Peter Pan/Bonanza bus will announce returning service to/from PVD on Monday...

Great news, rumor wise. Continued service to Boston as before or maybe two stop Hyannis service? Fall River and New Bedford stop possibilities.

Airport service will consist of direct buses to the PP/B Terminal on North Main with connecting service to points on the Cape, Boston, etc.

How bad is the car theft situation at the PP/B Terminal on North Main right now? It's not exactly easy access any other way other than to drive...

I was told the car theft situation had been taken care of, but I have no idea if that's true. Don't even get me started on how inacessible the terminal is. Unless you're coming from 95N to exit 25A, it's a pain in the a** to get there. Here's the route I'm forced to walk because of barbed wire fences, highways, train tracks, blah blah blah. The red pushpin is where I wish they'd cut some stairs into the embankment so pedestrians could get there from the Smithfield Ave sidewalk.

if you haven't already - send PP/B a letter asking them for better pedestrian access??

If I send them a letter it will be to ask them to stop using that for passenger service, it adds about a half hour to the trip between Kennedy Plaza and the Cape. We need to get Gaspee Station built!

Love your map! I used to live in the Fairlawn section for years (now in Maine), and I know exactly what you are talking about! Jumping from one link to another, and I found myself in UrbanPlanet. I like to keep up with what's changing in RI, and, as Arnie put it so succinctly, I'll be back! :)

Envisioned are eight roundtrip trains daily.

Now we just need Woonsocket service to add 8 more trips and we'll have some sweet commuter rail service connecting the southern suburbs to the city.
