Rochester, NY: Regional Transit Service (RTS) announced today that because of the impact and uncertainty of the Coronavirus, the full launch of Reimagine RTS on June 29 is postponed.
“In order to successfully launch the new transit system all necessary technology systems must be in place, new employees must be hired and trained, and our customers must be educated,” RTS CEO Bill Carpenter said. “It has reached the point in our project plan where we can no longer complete all these tasks by June 29. Once we are able to resume normal operation, we will identify what, if anything, we can launch on June 29, as well as the date when the entire system will be in place. In the meantime, we will continue progressing the elements of the project we can.”
Additional updates on this critical project will be provided as they become available.
