Dear interpreter Colleagues from the State of Rhode Island,

I will be traveling to Providence, Rhode Island in November. I would like to know if they have a bus, trolley or train that can take me from The Providence, Rhode Island Bus Terminal to the Rhode Island Convention Center and Dunkin Donuts Center located in 1 Sabin St, Providence, RI 02903. I’m going to work as an interpreter in a conference there for around three days this November 6, 7 and November 8th. I live in New York Jersey but my company is sending me there for work. I will be in Providence for around 4 days.

I called today the State of Rhode Island Public Authority but nobody answered the phone. I was waiting for one hour and a half for someone to answer. I don’t know what is wrong with the Bus company customer service number today.

Thanks for your prompt answer.

Best regards,

Yugoslavia

A simple google search Oct 5, 2015

on Rhode Island Public Transportation shows the 'Official Site of the Rhode Island Public Transit Authority'. Put in 'bus station' and 'convention center' and a map shows you that it is a 7 minute, 0.3 mile walk.

Thanks Benno. Oct 6, 2015

Thanks Benno,

I really appreciate it. I'm not from Rhode island so I'm not very familiar with the city of providence. I will be arriving in the greyhound bus so maybe this is the same bus terminal where this bus is supposed to arrive.

Please let me know if this is close from there. I guess will be very cold in Rhode Island during the month of November. I prefer to take the bus instead of walking.
