Providence Residents

Students who reside in Providence and live two miles or more away from the school qualify for a free monthly RIPTA bus pass. This distance is determined by the Providence School Department.  Families must apply for this every year. 

Students who have a medical need that requires transportation and live inside the 2-mile radius may contact the Providence School Department’s Transportation Office for a waiver, but the request must be documented by a doctor’s letter explaining the physical need.
