Transit Development Plan Community Survey and Outreach

Get involved in the future of Rochester transit:

Beginning on Monday, October, 26, 2015, Rochester Public Transit (RPT) will be launching several public input efforts. This is part of the Transit Development Plan, which will guide RPT’s development for the next 5-7 years. These outreach efforts will help RPT learn what is working well with the bus system, what needs to improve, and how we could make the needed improvements.

  1. The community survey has been designed to gather information from the general public about RPT, and is intended for everyone, whether they ride RPT buses or not. The survey can be found at:
  2. On Tuesday, October 27, 2015, from 5:30 until 7:30 Rochester Public Transit (RPT) will host an open house at the Viking Room of the Kahler Grand Hotel, 20 2nd Ave. SW, Rochester, MN.
  3. On Wednesday, October 28, 2015, outreach staff will be conducting brief pop-up meetings at the Downtown Transit Center (mid-morning) and the bus stop at Apache Mall (afternoon). If you are at these locations on the 28th, the outreach staff will be able to answer questions about this planning process, take input from you, and help you fill out the community survey.
  4. Beginning the week of October 26, 2015, RPT will launch a My Sidewalk page for the Transit Development Plan. This is an interactive, social-media tool that allows users to respond to specific questions and concerns about transit in Rochester. When it is ready, there will be a link to the My Sidewalk page on RPT’s website (
