So I learned today that RIPTA now goes into Massachusetts. Only as far as South Attleboro Station which is right across the line from Pawtucket, RI.
So that made me think. Since I’m shelling $330 a month for an MBTA commuter pass that gets me unlimited rides on the commuter rail, subways and MBTA buses then why doesn’t RIPTA honor that pass too?
I mean the MBTA has partnered with all sorts of systems in MA, why not RI? I want to see super-regional transit systems in place.
