Rhode Island Public Transit Authority (RIPTA) offers a special Reduced Fare Bus Pass Program that allows qualifying low-income seniors (age 65 or over) and low-income persons with disabilities to travel free as of July 1, 2017. Participants in this no fare program are issued a “Valid All Day” photo identification card that they use to board the bus.
RIWorks (RIW) recipients receive monthly bus passes providing unlimited access to public transportation, in conjunction with the hours of operation of RIPTA bus services, for adults and children.
Only a Department of Human Services (DHS) Employment Career Advisor or a DHS Supervisor may authorize issuance of RIW Monthly Bus Passes.
