RCSD implements new bus policy

The Rochester City School District has implemented a change in policy for students who use RTS buses to get to school and it will reduce the number of students who congregate downtown.

Previously, many students had to transfer to another bus downtown. Under the new policy, most students will now take the bus directly to school, reducing the number who wait for a transfer downtown. The district says it will improve safety and insure that students get to school on time.

School officials and RTS employees are patrolling the area to make sure students follow the new policy.
