For such a small city, Providence offers a lot of options to travel within the city and to other big cities. If you want to get to New York or Boston via train or bus, you can walk downhill to the station in about 10 minutes. Within the city, trolleys run to major areas of town, and they are cheap and run regularly. There are also a lot of people on campus brave enough to bring cars, so it’s easy to bum rides.
Cheap and reliable, Providence’s RIPTA system will get you everywhere you need without the hassle of having a car. Many Brown students use public transportation infrequently because most missions can be accomplished without having to leave College Hill, but when you need them, a trolley, bus, or train are waiting to carry you away.
