PROVIDENCE – Amtrak has announced the launch of its latest connecting bus service, linking New Bedford and Worcester to Providence Station. Customers can connect to Amtrak trains at Providence Station serving the Northeast Corridor, including Boston, New Haven, New York and more, as well as more than 500 destinations nationwide.

“Amtrak’s latest connecting bus service will bring a brand-new link from New Bedford and close an existing gap in Worcester with convenient, timed connections between trains and buses to Providence and our national network,” said Amtrak Executive Vice President, Strategy and Planning Dennis Newman. “Customers can enjoy a comfortable journey from start to finish knowing Amtrak will get them to their final destination with ease.”

Schedules are optimized for connections on both weekdays and weekends, with a dedicated connecting bus available in the morning, afternoon and evening. All buses are ADA accessible and have modern amenities including electrical outlets, Wi-Fi and comfortable reclining seating. The Providence to New Bedford route will also include an intermediate stop in Fall River. Service will be operated by DATTCO under an agreement with Amtrak.

“DATTCO is pleased to have been selected for the launch of this important new regional service being introduced by Amtrak,” stated Dennis Lyons, Vice President of DATTCO’s Coach & Tour Group. “As a long-time bus partner of Amtrak in New England, we look forward to putting our more than 20 years of experience together to work in delivering connecting bus service between Central and South Coastal Massachusetts and Amtrak’s Northeast Corridor.”

Amtrak connecting bus services make coordinated connections with trains and enable passengers from cities without rail stations to connect with the national network.

Now until October 9, Providence customers can also take advantage of the station’s connecting service with RIDOT and the Seastreak Ferry.

    Probably an easy way for fentanyl couriers to deliver their goods to all of these drugged up depression hubs masquerading as livable cities. The good times never end thanks to our quasi-poloticos delivering “master planning” blueprints that enrich the well connected and well funded while driving the hard working, destitute. It’s only a matter of time before the productive sentient mains check out of this failing equation. Elections have consequences, and Stolen Elections have catastrophic consequences! But hey it’s cool to watch our country turn blue and I don’t mean Democrat ruling party blue. America is being choked to death by corrupt elements who have taken control of her institutions. Yeah, yeah, yeah it’s Donald J Trump and his Russian Collusion to blame. Same people in the Main Stream Media who lied to you for decades are still manipulating you with their Stalinist propaganda. You get what you accept, that’s why most of your lives suck. Mine is getting more difficult, if I could only print up quadrillions of worthless paper I’d give the people the impression that I was all powerful like the scum in Washington D.C. IT’S all a fading illusion. Time for a more expansive war or a major false flag attack to get you sheep focused on the boob tube again.

    The anonymous clown above believes everything’s a antifa, anti-fascist conspiracy and we’re all in on it. Yes all us voters are in on it at the election booth in our best in the world election systems that only conspiracy nuts believe had been stolen from their minority with zero evidence for their fascist minority who would like to take over the country for their fascist wishes of hate, xenophobic racism, authoritarianism, control women’s bodies. The worst part is they’re so brainwashed from the conspiracy crap that they don’t realize how they’ve been radicalized. When all the evidence is in front of you and you don’t believe it you’re in a cult. A MAGAt cult. Possibly a dangerous cult.

    Why does loud mouth clown whose clueless on any facts and believes ridiculous things?

    The ingredients for fentanyl comes to the US mail from China and what comes from Mexico comes through the legal border crossings. The problem is the demand terrible treatment systems. If the ignoramus above realized the chemical change to the brains of these poor people that require years of treatment that we are too cheap to pay for but then complains about the problem that will never go away because we’re not willing to fix it.

    Again what are you afraid of that you can’t post under your own name? I’m sure you know all your unproven idiocy is not popular amongst the majority in this well-educated state that you obviously don’t respect.

      Antifa? Where is that mentioned in the above comment? What a delusional rant replete of any factual statements or evidence. I guess this is what happens when you are a complete failure at life, as is one Ken Messianic. Why do you whine and throw a temper tantrum over your sycophantic desire to know me? You are an NPC and no one cares about you. Because of your sociopathic tendencies you are sitting in your basement soaked in cat piss worried about what I’m doing. Based on all of your comments around the world wide web, it is easy to deduce that you are an incel. Thankfully since you are in your 60’s and have never procreated, your complete ineptness and stupidity will end with you! You couldn’t even decipher the fact that my above post was mostly humor, except for the stolen elections. Just like you went on and on for 7 years about Russians and Nazis and are still doing so knowing it was all an NWO fraud, you will keep it up because you are a corrupt creature. Never mind the fact that that you are hideously ugly to go along with your low IQ, you closely resemble a stereotypical troglodyte. It’s funny how you enjoy rolling around in the excrement of your political masters acting as if you are a member of the self important political class who care nothing of you. Massachusetts has become a toilet, attracting carpet bagging psychopoliticos who couldn’t be elected dog catcher in their own communities, so they come here knowing trash like you will respond like a lap dog to their degeneracy and crimes against the people. Now go along and lay down on your cat hair, cat piss soaked mattress and leave the commentary to those of us living productive lives.

        Hey it’s the Coward Moron Maximus that post under so many names on this site and always childlike associates my name with Masonic which makes no sense but I guess he gets his jollies out of it. What a sad life being an ignoramus that gets all his news from illegitimate non-media and has been brainwashed into fascism and believes every conspiracy no matter how insane. Yes you’ve already let us know how you think and you believe antifa is a real thing because you’re paranoid clown and probably extremely low IQ because you’re too easily fooled and believe silly things like the orange Mussolini won the election with zero proof and zero proof and zero proof and it’s been thrown out of every court because zero proof and every lawyer has been disbarred because of zero proof but keep on pushing your conspiracy craziness like a crazy man that you are. So who are you you coward why don’t you come out and use your real name come on use your real name you chicken piece of crap. You spew your hate with three different names. Moron Maximus fed up idiot and what else was there Oh 0% some stupidity yeah use your real name or you’re totally illegitimate idiot from your parents basement probably. So did you even graduate high school? Probably just pushed through Durfee. So let me guess you’re just a janitor or maybe a trash picker! No wonder you’re so miserable. It’s obvious you suffering from what I’m not sure but it’s probably neurological.

    Wow you insulted so many people with your idiotic comments. Non high school grads, Durfee Graduates, janitors, trash men, which my Dad and Brother both did, basement dwellers, MAGA people, idiots (which you are one) and conspiracy theorists (which you use because you could never answer a straight question, because you’re an idiot). I can answer many questions with fact based responses and that scares Antifa pigs, who resort to attacking anyone they can bully. I’m not scared of all of you phonies who have zero power. I have power, The Creator of this Universe is my Father and he shouts my name from the mountain tops because I love him and my life is about service to him. He is the Creator of the Natural Order. I ask my father to transform your ignorance into clarity and you may learn his way!
