On an average day in Rochester over 1.5 MILLION DOLLARS vanish from the local economy. That money isn’t being abducted by extraterrestrials – it’s what we voluntarily burn on gasoline.
We have the power to reinvest those dollars back into Rochester’s economy by using public transit as an alternative to driving whenever possible.
RTS has kindly agreed to honor this pin as free fare on any RTS bus all day on October 20 only. Simply show it to your friendly RTS bus driver. Even if you’ve never used RTS before, now is the perfect time to give it a try – if only for one day.Take it to work, go shopping, or take a leisurely trip down the street to visit a friend.
Reconnect Rochester will be giving away these ‘UFO’ pins at area businesses all month long. Stop by the Swedge Shop at 732 South Ave to pick one up. Or you can get yours by mail. Visit http://RochesterVanishing.info to learn how.
