RTS Announces Delays and Bus Stop Closures on Main Street and Depot Avenue
Regional Transit System is expecting delays and will temporarily close ten bus stops due to construction on North Main Street and Depot Avenue.
North Main Street - Beginning Thursday, Sept. 10, the Route 15 southbound Main Street bus stops between North 8th Avenue and University Avenue will be temporarily closed until further notice. The southbound lanes will be closed for road construction and buses will not have access to the sidewalk or bus stops. RTS customers may go to University Avenue or the Gainesville Shopping Center (Publix) for bus service. Northbound Route 15 service will not be affected at this time.
Depot Avenue - On Monday, Sept. 14, RTS will temporarily close five bus stops on SE 4th Street between SE 7th Avenue and SE 10th Avenue, and one stop on southbound Main Street across from the St. Francis House due to road construction on Depot Avenue. RTS customers are asked to go to the Rosa Parks Downtown Station, located on SE 3rd Street, to catch all city and campus bus service. These changes will remain in effect for several months until Depot Avenue is open to traffic.
Passengers on RTS bus routes 6, 15, 407 and 410 should expect 5 to 10 minute delays due to the reduction of travel lanes for construction on North Main Street. We ask our customers to be aware of these service changes and plan accordingly. We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience and understanding.
