Getting Around Gainesville Now A Little More Difficult
Finals week has come and gone and so have the students.
Fewer students means fewer people are depending on Gainesville's regional transit system to get around town and while the change can be inconvenient, RTS says it's necessary to stay afloat.
If you're planning on using Gainesville's bus system to get around town you might need to take another look at your schedule.
Thousands of students have left North Central Florida for the summer, and that means less revenue is coming into the city in the form of bus fare.
RTS has suspended it's on campus shuttle and the later gator services until summer classes resume.
But even if you are traveling away from campus, ridership tends to be slower in the summer so RTS has also reduced routes that are popular with students around town.
RTS hopes with a little planning most people won't be inconvenienced by the change.
