The health and safety of our Rochester community continues to be the City of Rochester’s top priority. Following the social distancing guidelines of the Minnesota Department of Public Health, Rochester Public Transit is suspending regular weekday service and implementing Core Service routes effective March 20, 2020.
Begining Friday, RPT will be operating Routes 21, 22, 23, 24, 25 and 26, seven days per week. And suspending service on Routes 1-19 indefinitely.
