Bill Carpenter, CEO of Rochester Regional Transportation Authority spoke to the Board about an exciting new program that is now available in Wayne County.
Regional Transit Service (RTS) is expanding the free fares for military veterans program to Wayne County. The free fares apply to regular route service only. Dial-a-ride service is not included. “Through our work with county leaders and veterans throughout the RTS service area, we learned that transportation is a barrier to veterans having access to important destinations and services in their communities,” RTS CEO Bill Carpenter said. “These brave men and women volunteered to put themselves in harm’s way to protect our freedom. Instituting free fares is our way of removing that barrier and saying thank you.”
