LINCOLN – The Rhode Island Public Transit Authority has announced the expansion of Flex Service 281 (Woonsocket/Manville) into Manville. Passengers can travel within the local Flex Zone, which includes Woonsocket and Manville, in addition to connecting to RIPTA’s fixed-route, statewide service. Key destinations in the Flex Zone include Manville Manor, Stop & Shop, Landmark Medical Center, Dowling Village, Walmart-North Smithfield and Walnut Hill Shopping Center.
Flex Service brings a public transportation option to areas that have little or no fixed-route service. The service offers passengers the option of choosing their own pick-up or drop-off point within their designated local Flex Zone.
