COVID-19 SAFETY POLICY

Following the State of Rhode Island’s policy, those who are fully vaccinated are not required to wear a mask. A mask is required for those who are not fully vaccinated. Temperature screenings may also be required.




BIKING, PARKING & TRANSPORTATION

Parking in Newport is limited. For convenient and inexpensive parking, we strongly recommend parking at the Gateway Transportation Center and utilizing the Rhode Island Public Transit Authority (RIPTA) trolley.


Park at the Gateway Transportation Center, 23 America’s Cup Avenue, Newport, RI.


Take RIPTA trolley #67, which leaves every 20 minutes on weekdays and every 15 minutes on weekends.


The trolley cost is $2 per person, each way, cash only, exact change required. When you board the trolley, ask the driver for a receipt. Later, when you go to exit the parking lot, present this receipt and your parking lot ticket to the parking attendant and you will pay just $2 for all day parking.
