ABOUT "ROC TRANSIT DAY"
ROC Transit Day (June 20, 2013) is a grassroots campaign intended to encourage Rochesterians to use public transit and go car-free for one day. Rochester area employers can request free all-day bus passes for their employees. And anyone with a transit fare card on ROC Transit Day can redeem exclusive deals and offers at participating shops and businesses.
There are a gazillion reasons to use public transportation. ROC Transit Day is an excuse for Rochesterians everywhere to celebrate its benefits and have a positive impact on our world.
GIVE IT A TRY...
Even if you've never used transit before, our helpful Transit Tools will make it a snap.
THERE'LL BE PRIZES
Our volunteers will be giving away gift certificates, local event tickets & other fun prizes to random bus riders. You can also share your photos on our Facebook page for a another chance to win a prize*.
BUSKERIN' & BEER!
Listen to music buskers on Main and Broad Streets while you wait for your bus. Or join us for Happy Hour at Murphy's Law. Show your RTS fare card and receive a FREE drink and appetizers while supplies last!
*Upload your ROC Transit Day photos to the Reconnect Rochester Facebook page.
