Brett Smiley Unveils Transportation Plan for Providence

PROVIDENCE, RI –  Brett Smiley released his “Transportation Plan,” outlining strategies for making Providence a safer and friendlier place to walk, run and bike, improving access to public transit, and providing smarter parking options.

Smiley’s plan includes fully implementing a bike share program and adding bike racks, investing in pedestrian corridors, upgrading rail access to Boston, campaigning for the RIPTA bus hub at the train station, providing better transit options for students, maximizing on-street parking, and improving the overnight parking permitting process.
Brett Smiley commented, “Back in February, I released my plan to create jobs and grow our economy, and that plan focused as much on our neighborhood businesses as it did on Downtown. Connecting our neighborhoods, Downtown, and the I-195 land is critical to economic growth. I lived for years in Providence without a car, and I know how hard it can be. This plan provides a detailed blueprint to better connect our city by increasing options for pedestrians and bikers and creating a stronger, more comprehensive public transit system.”
Smiley’s “Transportation Plan” is one piece of the full “Quality of Life Plan” he will be releasing next week.
Brett Smiley is running in the September 9th Democratic primary for Mayor of Providence. Smiley’s “Transportation Plan” is attached.
