ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) – With frigid temperatures in the forecast for Wed., Rochester Public Transit is activating the fare-free program called a “Warm Place to Be.”

For the entire service day on Wed., Jan. 19, people caught outside in a dangerous situation can notify an RPT driver that they need to escape the cold and warm up, free of charge.

Most RPT routes start and end in Downtown Rochester, running in 30-minute intervals in the peak times and  60-minute intervals during midday and evening service.

RPT wants to remind people if they use the service, to make sure they don’t find themselves far away from home.

Officials advise that when the weather is extremely cold, to dress appropriately, or try to stay indoors if possible.
