RIPTA to detour 12 routes due to winter conditions

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — The Rhode Island Public Transit Authority (RIPTA) announced that 12 routes are on detour Monday, March 2, 2015, as regular service resumes after a weekend storm.

Accumulating snow in some areas and unplowed secondary roads, make it difficult for RIPTA vehicles to travel safely. Routes 1, 3, 6, 18, 27, 29, 34, 49, 64, 67, 87 and 92, are on currently on detour.

RIPTA will continue to restore service on those routes as conditions allow and will also advise riders of any other detours due to the storm.

Passengers are encouraged to check for updates throughout the day. Riders may expect some delays on all routes due to weather conditions and are advised to use extreme caution at bus stops due to decreased visibility and slippery conditions.
