There are two stops:
  • King Street Metro – the Maritime Heritage Center is approximately 1.2 miles from this stop, but it is an easy walk. It is also an easy walk to the waterfront; or take advantage of the free King Street Trolley, which runs every 15 minutes from 11 am – 11 pm.  The trolley runs from the King Street Old Town Metro Station to Market Square / City Hall.  From there, it’s just a short walk to the Waterfront.

  • Braddock Road Metro – the Maritime Heritage Center is approximately 1.5 miles from this stop. There is no shuttle bus from this Metro stop to the Maritime Heritage Center.


If using a ridesharing app like Uber or Lyft, we recommend using the address “1A Prince St” rather than entering “Waterfront Park,” as entering the address will get you a bit closer.  From there, head toward the water and you should see Providence.
