ALBION – The Regional Transit Service (RTS) today announced that it will adjust its service to operate Dial-A-Ride public transit service only in Orleans County starting Monday, April 6.

This shift, which also includes Livingston County, is to help protect RTS employees and customers, and help prevent the spread of the coronavirus, RTS officials said.

RTS Genesee and RTS Wyoming switched to Dial-A-Ride on March 26, 2020.

RTS encourages customers to follow the guidance of Governor Andrew Cuomo: “Individuals should limit use of public transportation to when absolutely necessary and should limit potential exposure by spacing out at least six feet from other riders.”
