Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) -  Rochester Public Transit is offering free bus rides Thursday and Friday.

Passengers just need to tell the driver they are taking the offer for “A Cool Place to Be” in order to receive their free ride.

RPT can transport residents to “cool” places such as the public library, shopping malls, and swimming areas.

Residents are encouraged to minimize their time waiting outside in the heat for their bus by using RPT’s new Real Time Bus Tracking System.
