ALBION – A public transportation provider in Orleans County will meet with agencies, stakeholders and the public on Wednesday afternoon during two sessions at Hoag Library, 134 S. Main St., Albion.

RTS Orleans transported about 40,000 riders in 2015. The agency wants to hear from customers and agencies on how the service can best serve the public, said Mike Ryan, manager of operations for RTS Orleans, which is based on West Academy Street at the Orleans County Highway Department.

RTS, the parent organization for the service in Orleans and several other counties, has launched a regional service efficiency study to identify service improvements and connections across the seven counties served by RTS.

Some of agencies served by RTS Orleans will meet at Hoag at 2 p.m. on Wednesday to discuss the service’s strengths and weaknesses.

The public is then invited to a 4 p.m. meeting at Hoag to discuss the local bus service.
