RI Bridge Bike Shuttle

Free shuttles for bikes & riders

Great news for bikes and bridges!
Don’t let a couple of bridges get in the way of your ride!

 

Starting Saturday June 23rd • 3 times a day on Saturdays (times on image below)

The FREE shuttles will run from North Kingstown, to Jamestown, to Newport and back!

Partners Bike Newport, RI Turnpike and Bridge AuthorityDiscover Newport, and the YMCA together presented a new project to get bicyclists across the Newport Pell and Jamestown Verrazano Bridges. Beginning June 23rd a free service will be in place on Saturdays through the summer season to shuttle bicyclists from Newport to Jamestown to North Kingstown, making three rounds each day.

Reservations will be made online at www.ribridgebikeshuttle.com.

Eric Offenberg, Director of Engineering at RITBA, explained, “If you want to ride around Jamestown and then continue on to Narragansett, or you want to come to Jamestown and continue on to Newport, you’ll be able to get across and know you have a way back across the bridges.”

“Whether they’re coming from Connecticut or Key West, whether they’re going to Newport or the Cape or Canada, we want to make sure that our bridges don’t get in the way of cyclists passing through Aquidneck Island,” said Bari Freeman of Bike Newport.

 

So, don’t let those two bridges get in the way of your ride. Grab your friends and family and give it a try. We’d love to hear about how it went. Email clare@bikenewportri.org with your story and a photo and you could be in our newsletter or on our social media channels. Share the bike-love!
