New Rail Line Will Link New England Cities With Airport

The planned $222.5 million transit hub will seamlessly link T.F. Green Airport with Providence and Boston by 2009.

"Yesterday, federal, state and local officials broke ground on a $222.5-million intermodal train station and rental car parking garage connected to T.F. Green Airport. The station will connect Warwick to Boston via the Metropolitan Boston Transit Authority's trains, which will run eight times a day Monday through Friday starting in late 2009.

'This project is a sign that Rhode Island is becoming a force in the New England economy. Cities across America should take notice of how the state is addressing transportation in this integrated and innovative approach,' said Maria Cino, acting U.S. Secretary of Transportation, who was on hand for the groundbreaking.

'It really will impact this region. It is long overdue,' Cino said."
