WARWICK, R.I. (AP) — Train service between Rhode Island and Gillette Stadium is set to return on days the New England Patriots play home football games.
The service between T.F. Green Airport in Warwick and the stadium in Foxboro, Mass., will begin Friday, when the Patriots play the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in a preseason matchup. A round trip ticket costs $15. The train will also pick up fans at stations in Providence, South Attleboro, Attleboro and Mansfield.
Trains leave the airport a few hours before the game starts and depart Gillette Stadium 30 minutes after the game ends. Schedules are available at www.mbta.com.
The service will be available for every home game.
The Rhode Island Department of Transportation announced the service Thursday.
The MBTA reminded fans that bags and backpacks prohibited under new NFL rules should be left at home.
