RTS offers free shuttle service to PGA
Pittsford, N.Y. -- There is no parking available on the grounds of Oak Hill Country Club during the PGA, but neighbors are renting out their driveways and lawns, on a daily basis or for a weekly rate.
But, for the thousands who don't want to deal with the hassle of driving and finding a place to park, there will be free shuttle service.
Shuttles will be available at two locations: the blue lot at Monroe Community College and the gray lot at Rochester Tech Park on Elmgrove Road in Gates.
Shuttles will run every 5-10 minutes from 6:30 a.m. through 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday, as well as Sunday, and from 6 a.m. until 9 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
They will drop people off near the merchandise tent inside Oak Hill Country Club.
RTS will roll out one hundred buses and said the service will help reduce car traffic in and out of the country club. One of the large buses can take the place of 40-50 cars.
Meagan Lewandowski lives on Kilbourne Road. She can walk to Oak Hill and will do that to see the golf. She also plans to rent out her yard for people who want to park there.
She said there is already a lot of traffic on her street but hopes the shuttles will reduce car traffic, so people can walk safely to the golf course.
Lewandowski said she is excited and said this is great for our community and something she and her neighbors are embracing.
