Transportation & Getting Around

South County RI is slightly “off the beaten” because of Interstate 95 veering to the western part of RI after heading south from Providence. Route 1 and 4 are the main throughways in North Kingstown (and all of South Country). But living in North Kingstown gives homeowners two unique advantages: 

1. Direct access to the Newport Bridge, which leads into the scenic East Bay of Rhode Island and the city of Newport.

2. North Kingstown is the only town in RI with an MBTA train station on the Providence/Stoughton line (besides T.F. Green and Providence). Wickford Junction station provides easier travel for those commuting into Providence or Boston, and it’s only one stop away from the airport.

  • Distance to T.F. Green Airport: 16 miles
