Open Parking (Grey)

Parking lots A, C, E2, and K, as well as street parking, represent open parking which is available to all groups with the exception of resident students.

Rhode Island College has partnered with iParq to institute specific parking procedures for the campus. This is a FREE service offered to our campus community. Under these new procedures, parking lots on campus have been assigned to specific groups of the campus community. Each is color coded differently. Only those vehicles whose colored permit matches the color coded parking lot signage will be allowed to park in that lot. All existing reserved and handicap spaces will remain the same.

Bus Transportation 

Bus transportation is provided by the Providence School Department via their contract with First Student Transportation, for all children (except preschool) who live in Providence. Only Providence residents with bus passes may use First Student/Providence buses for transportation to and from school. First Student Transportation has asked us to remind parents that children cannot take a bus other than the one to which they are assigned. This means that students cannot take another bus to a friend’s house.  Transportation for children who reside in other communities is the responsibility of the parents, though Statewide Transportation now provides service from most RI cities and towns. (Be aware that  Statewide bus runs are typically one hour or longer in duration, and will often involve learners from many schools in Providence on the same run.)  We anticipate that HBS learners will behave on the bus in the same appropriate way they do in class. If they fail to do so, they will be corrected, and may – for certain behaviors or repeated misbehavior -- forfeit bus privileges.
