ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) – Rochester Public Transit (RPT) is offering no-fare boarding for anyone seeking shelter from the dangerous weather conditions in response to a Wind Chill Advisory issued by the National Weather Service.
Starting at 6 p.m. Thursday until the end of the service day Friday anyone will be able to board a RPT bus for free.
This is part of RPT’s “A Warm Place to Be” program.
