Here we present the story about Wyoming Transit Service, a subsidiary of Rochester-Genesee Regional Transit Authority, which was set up   to provide public bus service to all parts of Wyoming County,NY. WYTs represents a trend toward providing local public bus service to  partially fill in the gaps left behind by Greyhound and  other intercity bus companies no longer interested in serving rural America.

Wyoming Transit Service, based in Warsaw, NY, with the bus fleet garaged at the Wyoming County Highway Department in Rock Glen,NY, began operations on December 4,1994. Fleet of buses at the time was a mix of Thomas minibuses and International 4900 series buses, of  slightly larger capacity. Three routes cover Wyoming County,NY plus dial a ride operations  in  the Villages of Perry,Warsaw,Arcade. Each route operates in a loop and  is color coded. WYTS refers to each as the Green,Purple or Blue Route. All routes connect at Warsaw,NY, which is Wyoming County's county seat. Buses make connections in Wal-Mart plaza usually around noon. Here  are the lists of communities served by each WYTS route:
1.Green Route
Warsaw
Wyoming
Perry
Castile
Silver Springs

2.Purple Route
Warsaw
Gainesville
Pike
Bliss
Arcade
Strykersville
North Java

3.Blue Route

In addition to these loop routes, WYTS also operates dial a bus  services in Perry,Arcade, Warsaw,  usually between 9 am and 1 pm on weekdays and a commuter route from Perry to Warsaw. Each route operates 2 clockwise and 2 counterclockwise trips each weekday. One way fare between any two points in Wyoming County is $2.00 for adults, though with the cost of diesel fuel,  that could be adjusted.More recently, several 30 seat buses have been added  to the WYTS fleet and the  sister fleet  in nextdoor Livingston County. The company headquarters has been moved from the County Highway Department to a location on West Buffalo Street in downtown Warsaw, just several doors from Main Street. When   intercity   through line bus service   disappeared  from much of Wyoming County and other rural areas, such local operators as Wyoming Transit  Service  have stepped in to help fill in some of the service gaps. WYTS also operates shuttle services for some events as needed as well. Current fleet  consists of approximately a dozen buses, some International 4900s and the rest Chance 30 seaters.
