Boston/NYC Corridor

Rhode Island's location presents a compelling proposition. Since the state line begins right after Boston's I-495 loop, we offer suburban locations with access to Boston talent at a fraction of the cost—a chief reason companies such as CVS Health and Fidelity have headquarters and major operations here. 

A bit further south, but still just a 35-minute rail commute from Boston, is Providence, famed for its food and quality of life. GQ recently called our capital America's "coolest city", and Travel + Leisure named it America's "favorite."

To Providence's south is Narragansett Bay, the epicenter of Rhode Island's defense and maritime economy. Electric Boat, Raytheon, and major U.S. Navy R&D institutions inhabit seaside locations there, just minutes from world-class sailing, beaches, and resorts. Even these places are an easy ride to Boston; Boston's commuter rail line terminates just minutes from Electric Boat.

Daily Bus service from Rhode Island to New York City and Boston is provided by Peter Pan Bus Lines, Greyhound Lines and Megabus. 

Our manageable scale allows connections to form easily. And those connections can multiply exponentially as our geographic positioning along one of the richest economic corridors in the world makes the Greater Rhode Island region a premier locale for investment. The idea of  “thinking bigger” has real world business implications, given the wide swath of resources within our state.
 
In sum, Rhode Island offers not only a predictable business climate and potent incentive programs but also locations that range from the Greater Boston suburbs to the Long Island Sound, all within easy access of major cities on the Northeast corridor.

Boston-NYC
