'Spider-Man' forces changes to city bus routes



Regional Transit Service will change bus routes during the filming of the Amazing Spider-Man 2 in Rochester from April 30 through May 9.

RTS buses will bypass all stops and service on Main Street between Chestnut Street and Plymouth Avenue. Bus transfer points at the intersections of Main Street and Clinton Avenue and Main Street and St. Paul Street will be relocated to the Broad Street bridge between the Blue Cross Arena and the Rundel Library. The detours are necessitated by the closure of a large section of Main Street — from Chestnut Street to Plymouth Avenue — to accommodate filming.

Due to the extent of the detours, RTS’s “Where’s My Bus?” feature, which provides real-time information on bus arrival times and locations via email or text, will not be in service during the filming period.

Detailed information and maps related to the RTS detours are listed on the RGRTA website at rgrta.com/spiderman and RTS staff members will be available along Broad Street daily to assist bus customers. Customers may also call RTS customer service at (585) 288-1700 for assistance.
