July 14 – Rochester Subway Vintage Bus Tour
July 14 @ 11:30 am - 4:00 pm$60
Remains of the Rochester Subway are quickly disappearing! Join us for a special bus tour on July 14 that will trace the route of the Rochester Subway and visit key historic sites along the way, including the new RTS Downtown Transit Center.
The Rochester Subway served our city from 1927 through 1956, connecting the suburbs of Brighton with downtown and Greece. After the end of Subway service on June 30, 1956, Rochester Transit Corp. donated Car 60 to our museum. 2018 marks the 62nd anniversary of the donation, and also the 102nd birthday for his historic trolley car.
We will be riding in style thanks to Regional Transit Service’s restored 1957 GMC transit bus! The guided tour will depart from and return to Pittsford Plaza. We will visit the site of Rowlands Loop, Court Street station, the filled in Subway at Lexington Avenue, and the site of the carbarn at General Motors. Additional stops may also be possible.
Due to the vintage nature of this vehicle, it is not wheelchair accessible, however, every reasonable attempt will be made to accommodate those with mobility issues.
Tickets are $60.00 each
available by pre-sale only
Proceeds will be used to aid in the rebuilding and restoration of Rochester Subway Car 60. Participants will receive a souvenir program and a 18×24 poster of Rochester Subway Car 60.
