The MBTA Board today approved an agreement with Rhode Island to operate commuter rail service beginning in 2011 to TF Green Airport in Warwick and to Wickford Junction in North Kingstown. The proposed service extends the current service 20 miles beyond Providence to Warwick and Wickford.
Transportation Secretary and T Board Chair James Aloisi calls the extension "a good thing" offering new choices for commuters and others connecting with air service in Warwick.
The extended Rhode Island service will be added to the scope of MBCR's Operating Agreement with the MBTA. Rhode Island will be responsible for maintaining the stations and, with the MBTA, collecting revenue. The operating costs cannot come from either the MBTA or the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
