RPT set to inform riders about changes on the way


Changes are coming to Rochester Public Transit. Starting Thursday, riders have a chance to learn about the moves taking place starting this fall. 

RPT hosts the first of four public information meetings Thursday afternoon to educate riders about these changes, which include new numbers for all routes. 

Most routes will now run from 5 a.m. to 8 p.m. on weekdays. Plus, a crosstown loop will be established, to create more opportunities to transfer between routes without going downtown. 

The first meeting will be held at the John Marshall Cafeteria Thursday. Here's a look at the other meetings happening in the near future:

  • Tuesday, Feb. 20 at Mayo High School Cafeteria 
  • Thursday, Feb. 22 at Bamber Valley Elementary Room 501
  • Tuesday, Feb. 27 at Century High School Cafeteria 

All meetings run from 4:30 to 7 p.m. The changes will begin Oct. 1.
