Route 6 Detour Scheduled

The Route 6 will be detoured, starting Monday, November 10, due to construction at the South Main Street/Depot Avenue construction. Route 6 will leave the Rosa Parks Downtown Station heading north on SE 3rd Street, it will then turn left onto SE 4th Avenue and then right on South Main Street. The detour will be reversed when inbound to the Downtown Station. This detour is scheduled to last through December. Sorry for any inconvenience.

2014 Program of Projects

To remain eligible for federal and state funding, RTS is required annually to submit a Program of Projects to the Federal Transit Administration and a budget application for capital and operating projects to the Florida DOT. Please see below for the 2014 project list.
