Get ready for snow!

Stay safe and warm during winter weather! As we get ready for a storm on Thursday, February 9th, please keep the following information in mind:

  • The city has issued an on-street parking ban, starting at 2 AM on Thursday, February 9th and ending at 10 AM on Friday, February 10th. To receive updates from the city, sign up for alerts from CodeRed.
  • For e-news updates from RIPTA about potential changes to bus service, sign up here.
  • Check the MBTA website for updates on commuter rail service.
  • Please call businesses to check on their hours of operation.
  • Don’t forget–if you own property in downtown Providence, you are responsible for clearing snow from the sidewalk! The DID ambassadors will help with snow removal on curb cuts.

Check back for updates throughout the day.
