Providence TF Green AirportUrl: http://www.pvdairport.com/
Located a mere 10-15 minute cab drive from downtown Providence, TF Green is most conveniently located to travel to Providence. A cab ride to the conference hotel costs around $45. A cheaper option is take the RIPTA bus, which costs only about $2 (note that busses in Providence *never* change money, so be sure to bring some singles or even some coins!). To check the schedule please see http://www.ripta.com/trips/trips.php: Choose Warwick as your departure and Providence as your destion city. Then choose TF Green as your departure and Kennedy Plaza as your destination. From here follow the directions to your hotel below.
Boston Logan AirportUrl: http://www.massport.com/logan/default.aspx
An alternative airport that is often cheaper to fly into is Boston. A cab ride to Providence, which is about one hour away, is very costly (more than $150 one way). However, there are convenient bus connections from Logan Airport to Providence Kennedy Plaza via the Peter Pan/Bonanza bus company. For a schedule, please check http://www.peterpanbus.com/tickets/fares.php. The round trip is $40. Upon arrival at Kennedy Plaza, follow the instructions below.
A cheaper but less convenient option is to first connect to Boston South Station via the Silver Line (that runs every 10 minutes and only costs about $2 one way - again, be sure to bring exact change!) and to take the Peter Pan/Bonanza bus only from there (the round trip to Providence from South Station is only $15). The one tricky part is to change from Silver Line to Peter Pan in South Station. To do this, take the stairs up, exit the subway system, take another set of stairs up and cross the entrance hall/food court to exit the building on the very right. Walk to the right of the rightmost tracks and enter the building at the end. Climb all the way up again where you will find the main South Station Bus Terminal from where the Peter Pan busses depart.
