Help With Bus Schedule!!

Posted by Ciara Cleveland @martin8dee01, Feb 7, 2020

I have never had to take public transportation and am having a hard time figuring out where the bus stops in comparison to where I live and at what time! Anyone have any advice/tips or can shed some light on how to narrow down all of the information that the bus schedule website has!

Hi there!
You can go to the rpt website: https://www.rochestermn.gov/departments/public-transportation/how-to-get-around/bus-schedule-and-system-maps

It’s a little confusing but you can also download the “DoubleMap” app and it has live bus schedules along with the routes they go along. Kinda tricky thing is finding where they pick up downtown because those are usually different from where they drop you off in the morning. Also if you’re close enough to the East or West shuttle lots you can walk there and use those busses.

Thank you! I downloaded the app which is still confusing but definitely more helpful than trying to read the website!

Hi Claire! I feel your pain – I moved to Rochester not long ago and found this very difficult to figure out as well. It's a great system, the buses super clean and safe. But the system transport literally about 20,000 people per day so it's bound to be confusing. If you want to PM me with the approximate area you will be living, I will do my best to help you figure it out. I understand it very well now but it took some time. Welcome to Mayo Clinic and congratulations!
