Reimagine RTS is a deep study of Greater Rochester's bus system, initiated by RTS' operater, the Rochester Genesee Regional Transportation Authority. When the project is complete, RGRTA will have a recommendations for near-future changes to the local transit system. Consultants will prepare recommended bus route structures as part of that process.
In a press release announcing the meeting, the RPCC included its recommendations for RTS. Among them: increasing ridership by making bus service more frequent, avoiding further expansion into outlying areas as a way of encouraging employers to locate jobs near the city core, committing to an all-electric bus fleet by 2027, coordinating transit and land-use planning. The coalition also recommends that RTS develop and expand alternatives to full-size buses: using smaller buses on lines with lower use, expanding options such as van pooling, and coordinating with bike and car-share programs.
