AAA Northeast employees, elected officials, businesspeople and others gathered in late July for a ceremonial opening of the new AAA East Providence campus.
The site, at 10 River Road, along Wampanoag Trail, includes a AAA branch and a fleet and driver training center.
The branch provides convenient access to AAA products and services, and the fleet center bolsters the ability to respond to roadside requests in the East Bay area and southeastern Massachusetts.
The driver training center connects teen drivers with AAA experts who have spent decades instilling lifelong traffic safety habits.
“This is what the city needs, this type of business,” said Robert Britto, an East Providence city councilman.
Laura McNamara, executive director of the East Providence Area Chamber of Commerce, thanked the club for its investment in the city and for creating a landmark.
“Now we can say turn left at AAA,” she said.
On-site solar panels power the entire campus.
“We are absolutely thrilled to be here,” said John Galvin, AAA Northeast president and CEO.
