From the NEYM Earthcare Ministries Committee
For the past few years, the Earthcare Ministries Committee has encouraged Friends to pursue The Fourfold Path of alternatives to driving a partially-full car when considering their travel plans to NEYM Sessions — ride sharing, bicycling, walking, and public transportation. While the committee is not formally organizing bicycling and walking groups this year, it is offering resource people for carpool coordination and public transportation pickup.
Ride sharing: coordinate rides, including picking up people on the way to Providence. Contact Marcia Winters, 603-352-2051 • firstname.lastname@example.org .
Public transportation: arranging transportation between the train station or bus station in Providence and Bryant College. Contact Volunteer Coordinator Betty Poynton. 508-434-2739 • email@example.com (subject line “NEYM pickup”). Public transportation choices to Providence include:
- Commuter trains from South Station, Boston, on the Providence/Stoughton line. Seven trains run on Saturday, more on weekdays: www.mbta.com
- Amtrak Acela (Boston to Washington, DC) or NE Regional (Boston to Newport News, VA) lines. Ctlick on Stations, www.amtrak.com, enter PVD as station code, and click on “go!”
