(ABC 6 News) – Summer is here and the Rochester Downtown Alliance announced its new initiative to get more people to downtown Rochester.

The RDA’s slogan is “Explore Rochester’s Downtown.” Leaders say it’s not just a catchy phrase, but to remind people of the great things downtown has to offer.

Along with Thursdays Downtown, this summer there will be a new trolley system making 6 stops in downtown. The trolley runs Monday through Wednesday from noon to 5:00 p.m.

“Let me just say on behalf of the RDA and the other task force members, we heard our stakeholders, we heard the people who came to those meetings, and one of the most important things you wanted was to promote downtown as a destination, more activation and more programming. And that’s what we are here announcing,” Rochester Downtown Alliance Interim Executive Chair Kathleen Harrington said.

Thursdays Downtown begins June 15.
