Press Release, Regional Transit Service

ROCHESTER – As New York State readies its efforts to begin the reopening process later this week, Regional Transit Service announced today that the temporary waiving of fares will be extended through June 7. This extension will provide some consistency for customers through the first phase of the reopening.

RTS, which operates a transit service in Orleans County, initially waved fares on March 19 to help protect RTS bus operators and customers.

RTS encourages customers to follow the guidance of elected leaders and health experts by staying home whenever possible and limiting travel to essential rides only. This includes trips to destinations such as the grocery store, pharmacy and medical facilities. When taking these trips, RTS also encourages customers to follow Governor Cuomo’s executive order to wear a mask on the bus and while in public, and to maintain a distance of six feet between each other on the bus, at the RTS Transit Center and at bus stops.

RTS is a regional transit authority established by New York State with more than 900 employees who serve customers and business partners in Monroe, Genesee, Livingston, Ontario, Orleans, Seneca, Wayne and Wyoming counties. For more information, visit www.myRTS.com.
