Bus Stop Cubes Could Give Transit Riders in Rochester a Place to Rest

Sunday, November 23rd, 2014

Reconnect Rochester is aiming to come up with a solution for the lack of seating at bus stops in our region.
By Mike Governale

Have you ever noticed someone standing on the side a busy road or sitting on the curb while waiting for a bus? The lack of seating at bus stops in our area is a real problem, especially for seniors and people with disabilities. This week however, Reconnect Rochester unveiled a clever solution external link which they believe could change this picture…

1964 Rochester Transit Terminal Concept

Monday, January 6th, 2014

A concept by RTC president William Lang for a central transit terminal at Main & Clinton, Rochester NY. [IMAGE: Democrat & Chronicle, January 29, 1967]
Like, WOW! I stumbled upon this concept for an elevated transit terminal in a 1967 D&C article. The drawing shows how Rochester Transit Corporation president William Lang envisioned passengers would wait for their bus – suspended above the intersection of Main & Clinton. This view is looking east toward Clinton Avenue with Sibley’s in the background…

A Better Bus Pass for Rochester

Thursday, June 27th, 2013

I decided I didn't like Rochester's bus passes. So I redesigned them. This time for real.
Can you believe it’s been two years since I tried to redesign Rochester’s bus stop signs? Everyone seemed to agree that a makeover was in order – even the folks at RTS who were nice enough to meet with me. But a year later there had been no serious progress on that front. At which point I turned my attention to something else I thought I could improve on; the fare cards. This time I was able to make some real progress…

ROC Digital Makeover Contest… 1 Week to Go!

Wednesday, May 25th, 2011

Facebook Before June 1.

The Great ROC Digital Makeover! Submit a photo of a Rochester scene to RocSubway on Facebook. If chosen, we'll unleash the power of Photoshop and give your scene a digital facelift. You'll also win a FREE 16x10 print of Old Rochester City Hall. [Flickr Photo: globochem3x1minus1]

Given Rochester’s status as the “Image City” and our surplus of neglected real estate, I figured photos of Rochester would be raining down on the RocSubway Facebook page by now.

Here’s an opportunity to see what your city, town, or neighborhood could look like if given a little time and attention. And all you have to do is post a snapshot and get your Facebook pals to “like” it. RocSubway and Photoshop will do the rest.

The Great ROC City Digital Makeover

Wednesday, May 4th, 2011

Now Accepting Your Photo
Submissions (via Facebook)

The Great ROC Digital Makeover! Submit a photo of a Rochester scene to RocSubway on Facebook. If chosen, we'll unleash the power of Photoshop and give your scene a digital facelift. You'll also win a FREE 16x10 print of Old Rochester City Hall. [Flickr Photo: globochem3x1minus1]

Former Mayor Robert Duffy once described Rochester as a gem that just needs to be dusted off. That may be over simplifying things just a bit, but I tend to agree. Look around this city and it’s easy to find great beauty in our natural landscape and our built environment – in the new, the old… and the rusted.

Have you ever caught yourself staring at an abandoned building or a grand old house that has seen better days? Is there a park or a public space that could use a few trees, flowers or a fountain? Maybe you squint your eyes to try and see what once was, or what could be? Whatever it is, take a snapshot.

Post a photo of your favorite Rochester eyesore to www.Facebook.com/RocSubway. You could win a 16x10 reprint of this vintage postcard depicting Rochester City Hall and the subway entrance (c.1930).Then head over to our Facebook pageexternal link and post your pic on our wallexternal link. If your photo gets the most “Likes” by midnight May 31, 2011 we’ll give it a Photoshop makeover and you’ll win a FREE 16″x10″ print of this Rochester City Hall vintage postcard. Pretty cool.

A Better Bus Stop Sign for Rochester

Monday, April 25th, 2011

I believe RTS could ease the lives of all of its customers and gain a substantial number of new riders simply by redesigning the bus stop signs. And I'm not afraid to donate some free design services to get us there. Here's my proposed redesign…

While visiting Seattle a few years ago something occurred to me. Here I was on the other side of the country in a city I had never been to before in my life, and I was navigating their bus system like seasoned Seattleite. There were no fancy digital real-time signs, I had no smart phone, no GPS anything… I didn’t even have a printed schedule. I didn’t need any of those things because I had this…

Daddy, Tell Me About the Subway.

Saturday, January 10th, 2009

I grew up on the south shore of Long Island — about a half-mile walk from a Long Island Railroad station. As a teenager without a car I could leave my sheltered suburban Cape Cod style house, and in less than an hour be smack dab in the center of Manhattan. Not only that, but for just a dollar extra I could reach just about any corner of New York City’s five bouroughs by hopping on a subway car. Can you imagine if New York City had scrapped it’s subway in favor of a highway?!
