After a little more than a year of providing affordable public transportation around Yates County, the Yates Transit Service has announced plans to expand some routes and add others.
Daniele Lyman, President and CEO of The Arc of Yates, the agency that established the transit service in collaboration with Yates County, outlined the changes, which will take place in April, during a quarterly report to the Yates County Legislature March 12.
Lyman said the changes include:
‒ Route 6: three routes (6A, 6B, 6C) that will circulate through Penn Yan once in the morning and once in the early afternoon daily.
‒ Route 1 Limited: Because of the increased ridership on the original Dundee route, and in response to suggestions from the community, another mid-day route will be added.
‒ Route 1A: In addition to Routes 1 and 1 LTD, this route will travel via Rte. 14 to include Himrod.
‒ Route 5A: In addition to Route 5, which will go to Geneva via Rte. 14, Route 5A will go to Geneva via Route 14A.
Detailed maps of all the routes will be available on the YTS website and available in printed brochures soon, promised Lyman.
