RE: How far is Providence Airport from Amtrak station?

I'm flying into Providence and taking the commuter rail to Boston. What is the quickest way for me to get to the Amtrak station in Providence from the airport? Is it a quick cab ride?

The "Providence" airport is actually several miles south of the city, in Warwick, whereas the Amtrak/commuter rail station is right in the city center. Check the airport's web site, there are probably shuttles since this is a popular connection.

Ooops, here's something I already knew: The Bonanza Bus route from Boston to Providence also goes down to the airport. SO you could take the bus the whole way, without transferring to the train at all. Normally, I prefer trains but for a ride that's just over an hour long, it might be worth it to take the bus the whole way, to miss the transfer.
