RIPTA Schedules 2015 Community Site Visits for Bus Pass Program for Seniors and People with Disabilities

The Rhode Island Public Transit Authority (RIPTA) today released the 2015 Community Site Visit Schedule for the Bus Pass Program for Seniors and People with Disabilities.

Every week, RIPTA's Photo Identification staff travel to communities throughout the state to provide bus passes to qualified seniors and individuals with disabilities, who are unable to get to our office in downtown Providence. The Photo ID Office, which is open Monday through Thursday from 9 am to Noon and 1 pm to 4 pm, will be closed all day every Friday to provide photo identification “road trip” services around the state.

Photo identification bus passes are available to seniors and other qualified individuals with valid documentation. Identification cards for people with disabilities and senior passes will cost $25.00 in 2015 and are valid for 5 years.

For information on how to qualify for RIPTA's Bus Pass Program for Seniors and People with Disabilities, customers can call 784-9500, ext. 604 or visit
