I currently have a ticket to go from Providence to North Carolina to see my parents over Christmas. I'm taking the overnight Northeast Regional train and transferring to the Carolinian in Washington. I'm debating on if I should change my starting point from Providence to Kingston because I know there is free parking, which would save me a ton of money. However, I also know that parking can fill up at that station. 

Has anyone else ever taken the train out of there and knows how often parking fills up? Also is there a limit on how long I can leave my car in the long term parking?

Thanks all!

The parking lot at KIN is also used as the parking lot for the walking/biking trail which begins at the station. (It is the former ROW of the Narragansett Pier RR.) While it does fill up sometimes (mainly later in the day), I have never had a problem. It used to be my home station for 15 years, so I’ve parked there many times.

There is no limit on length of time. But like anywhere else, I would not leave any valuables in sight in you car.

Take the train instead and enjoy the ride!

The view is much better at 3 feet than it is at 30,000 feet!

Oh perfect. So if I arrive at 10 PM for my 10:48 PM train I should be all set on finding a spot. Thank you!

Yes, at 10 pm, most of the lot is open and available. I’ve taken 67 many times.

What day are you departing? I have found that lot to be full but night time shouldbe better bc you won't have trail users there.
