T.F. Green Airport has direct access to I-95 via a one-mile-long connector highway. The airport is served by major
car rental companies as well as by local taxi and limousine services.
The Rhode Island Public Transit Authority (RIPTA) offers public bus transportation to and from the cities of Providence
(Kennedy Plaza in downtown Providence) and Newport, and the University of Rhode Island campus in Kingston. In particular:
- The #20 bus goes to Kennedy Plaza by way of Elmwood and Roger Williams Park and Zoo, and takes approximately 40 minutes.
- The #14 bus goes directly to and from Kennedy Plaza and takes approximately 15-25 minutes, also connects to
Newport, Narragansett, and East Greenwich.
- The #66 bus also makes a direct route to Kennedy Plaza, also connects to URI.
Work has started on an intermodal station adjacent to the airport. Negotiations are in progress for the station to be served
by the MBTA Commuter Rail and Amtrak to provide service to Providence, Rhode Island, Boston, Massachusetts, and the Amtrak
Northeast Corridor including New York City. However those negotiations have been in progress for several years and as
of groundbreaking no definitive agreements are in place for train service, No weekend service is planned. The construction
was funded in a 2005 federal highway bill. In 2008, a funding shortfall was announced due to escalated construction costs.
Presently, Amtrak trains ride through Warwick, passing 1,250 feet from the airport terminal, without making a stop, as the
station is not complete. Amtrak is resisting adding TF Green Station as a stop citing costs related to building and
electrifying extra train rails. Amtrak has also cited a lack of sufficient ridership for the stop to be economically
sustainable. This may change with time.
Groundbreaking for the station was on July 17, 2006. Upon its completion (expected in 2010), T.F. Green will have the
closest intercity air-to-rail link in the country. Construction began in February 2009.
