Travel & Accomodation

Upon your arrival at T. F. Green Airport (Providence)

Look for the Airport Taxi Providence Shuttle desk (turn right at bottom of escalators and it’s at the end of all the Rent-a-Car desks) which is a shuttle service for the trip to the Brown University campus.  Cost is approximately $9 per person; phone number is (401) 737-2868.  The shuttle stops at the Public Safety Office (Faunce Arch) at 75 Waterman Street.  It’s usually a good idea to call the shuttle and register your flight number so they’ll know you’ll be needing a ride in to Providence.  Just look for the desk after you pick up your bags.  Shuttle leaves the airport every hour on the hour and drops off/picks up at Faunce House Arch at Brown every hour on the half hour.  Schedule starts at 5:30am at the Arch and last taxi from the airport to Brown leaves at 11pm.  For a direct taxi from the airport to your Providence location, it will cost $30;  they’re available outside the terminal.
