PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — New England Patriots fans looking to avoid sitting in traffic or paying for parking can once again hop on board a train to Gillette Stadium this season.

The MBTA this week released its commuter rail schedule for the 2019 season. Game day trains pick people up along the Providence line starting at the Amtrak station and along the Boston line starting at South Station.

According to MBTA officials, the game day train along the Providence line will no longer stop at TF Green Airport in Warwick. Officials said anyone planning to catch the train to Gillette Stadium should instead take RIPTA to Providence.
