TIP #1: Plan Your Trip

The key to any successful trip is to make plans before you leave. Get detailed transit directions at or download the RTS app (Android | Apple iOS).

TIP #2: Prepare Your Fare

It helps to have your fare ready so you're not fumbling for change at the farebox. RTS fareboxes accept coins and 1, 5, 10 & 20 dollar bills. Change is provided in the form of a Stored Value Pass (they never expire).

If desired, you can buy an All-Day Freedom Pass on the bus. Just tell the bus driver PRIOR to placing your money in the fare box.

You can also order fare cards online or by calling 585-288-1700.

Of course, on June 16, you'll ride for free with your ROC Transit Day fare card!
