Due to the collegiate break between Summer A and B sessions, Regional Transit System (RTS) will have impacts to its service between Saturday, June 22 and Sunday, June 30, 2013. Please see below for more information.
We will be detouring Route 43 from Depot Avenue between South Main Street and SW 6th Street for about three weeks starting Monday, June 17. Patrons may use stops at Royal Village or the Rosa Parks Downtown Station for service while the roadway is closed for construction. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Beginning Monday, May 6, we will begin our Summer Schedule with Reduced Service until Monday, May 12. There will be no UF campus service. Note that Routes 22, 27, 28, 29, 39, 46, 62 and 76 will not be running this Summer. Later Gator will be suspended until July 5. Please see attachments below for more information.
We have launched the RTS Youtube site (www.youtube.com/RTSGainesvilleFL) which has transit related videos. We hope you enjoy them!
We are having a contest for our patrons. Be one of the first 5 people to correctly identify the new RTS logo and the bus number where it is and win a RTS stuff. Responses must be made on the RTS Facebook page as comments to the announcing post. Good Hunting!!
RTS will open its first official Park-n-Ride facility on Monday, February 4 at the new Wal-Mart Supercenter located off of NW 34th Street, just south of U.S. 441. Please see release below for more information.
Be assured that we run all scheduled routes even though buses may not be shown on the Gator Locator system. Please call our Customer Service line at (352) 334-2600 to verify routes are running. We apologize for any inconvenience.
How To Ride
Whenever the National Weather Service issues a severe weather warning or watch for Alachua County and surrounding areas, RTS will provide regular city fixed route and campus shuttle service until sustained winds reach 39 mph. At that time RTS buses will finish their current run and service will be suspended for the duration of the emergency. RTS will suspend service for complementary Paratransit Service when sustained winds reach 35 mph.
For weather emergency related information, contact Alachua County Emergency Services at 3-1-1 or Rumor Control at 352-264-6557, or visit www.alachua-em.org.
