ALBION – The Orleans Transit Service, which provided 35,500 rides to county residents in the agency’s 2012-13 fiscal year, will celebrate the first bus shelter in the county on Wednesday.

Orleans Transit Service started about a decade ago in the county. The agency is part of the Rochester Genesee Regional Transportation Authority.

The bus agency will have a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 10 a.m. on Wednesday outside the County Administration Building at 14016 State Highway 31.

RGRTA CEO Bill Carpenter will join local officials, including County Legislator Henry Smith Jr., who serves as the county’s commissioner on the RGRTA board of directors.
