RPT offering a “Warm Place to Be” Wednesday

(ABC 6 News) – Rochester Public Transit is once again offering free rides to those caught outside this weekend looking to escape the cold and warm up.

For the entire service day on Wednesday, Jan. 19, persons caught outside in a dangerous situation can simply notify an RPT driver that they need to escape the cold and warm up, and no fare will be charged to board the bus.

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.

Persons taking advantage of this emergency program should take care not to find themselves stranded a long way from home.
