Interlink, formerly the Warwick Intermodal Station project, is an intermodal project connecting air, rail, bus, automobiles, and rental cars at T.F. Green Airport in Warwick, RI that serves the Providence area and Southern Massachusetts.
The intermodal facility serves MBTA (Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority) commuter trains traveling between Warwick, Providence, and Boston, utilizing Amtrak rails; and Wickford Junction in North Kingstown, RI that opened in April 2012. The rail platform is integrated with a consolidated rental car facility that houses all airport rental car operations. The six-level parking garage includes approximately 1,800 spaces for rental car operators and 800 for rail commuters. This garage includes the first elevated fueling platforms in the country. A 1,200-foot, elevated and enclosed walkway with moving sidewalks connects passengers to and from the airport terminal.
