Spring schedule adjustments for RPT effective April 23

(ABC 6 News)- Rochester Public Transit will be operating under an updated bus schedule and riders are encouraged to check for changes to ten routes that may affect them starting Sunday.

The spring service update includes expanded midday service on two routes: 101 and 206; and also involves small operational adjustments to eight routes: 203, 217, 250X, 306, 307, 309, 409 and 412.

Trips being added to Routes 101 and 206 will allow those routes to achieve 30 minute frequency. The increased service reflects implementation of public feedback gathered as part of creating RPT’s 2023-2027 Transit Development Plan. The expansion is being funded, in part, by a new service expansion grant from Minnesota Department of Transportation.

New schedules are available on RPT’s website, rptride.com. New printed schedules will be available starting Friday, April 21 on board RPT buses and wherever bus passes are sold.
