The City of Rochester and Destination Medical Center Economic Development Agency (DMC EDA) are seeking community feedback on the proposed transit circulator route and mode – either bus rapid transit or modern streetcar. View the full presentation provided to the City Council on August 5, 2019.

Teammates from the City of Rochester and DMC EDA will be staffing a booth at Thursdays Downtown on August 15, 22 and 29, 2019, to share more information about the potential routes, modes, funding sources and timeline. The booth is located near the Peace Plaza.

Community members can also provide feedback through the City’s online survey tool, Polco. The five questions asked to the community include:

  • What benefits do you see with having the circulator located on Broadway?
  • What benefits do you see with having the circulator located on 3rd?
  • What excites you most about the circulator?
  • What questions do you have about the circulator?
  • Do you prefer the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) option or the rail option?

The purpose of the transit circulator is to provide high quality and reliable downtown public transportation service for residents, commuters, businesses, patients, students, and visitors that will support the City of Rochester and DMC district transportation, economic development, and livability goals and substantially increase public transportation use downtown Rochester.
