ALBION — RTS Orleans, which operates a public transportation service in Orleans County, will resume regular service and collecting fares on Wednesday.

The Regional Transit Service, which operates public transportation in Orleans and seven other counties, hasn’t been collecting fares since March 19.

RTS initially waived fares to help protect RTS bus drivers and customers. RTS has implemented enhanced bus cleaning, and bus operators have access to masks, face shields, hand sanitizer and disinfectant.

Riders are urged to wear a face covering or mask, wash/disinfect their hands often, maintain social distancing when possible, and stay home if feeling sick.

In Orleans County, RTS has been operating a Dial-A-Ride public transit service only since April 6. On Wednesday, it will return to regular service. Click here for more from RTS Orleans.
