RTC Executive Management
General Manager - Tina Quigley
Tina Quigley, general manager of the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC), oversees one of the few agencies in the country that manages public transit, traffic management, roadway design, construction funding, and transportation planning, all under one roof.
Tina is working to change how residents, employees and visitors travel throughout our community by focusing on connecting the airport, resort corridor and convention center with a mass transit system and enhanced roadways. At the forefront of that effort is the Transportation Investment Business Plan, a cooperative effort with the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority, focused on strengthening our region’s tourism economy.
Tina understands that efficient and effective transportation is a key driver to economic development. She leads the RTC’s collaborative initiatives aimed at improving mobility and accessibility, creating jobs and attracting new businesses. She successfully worked with government, businesses and the community on the fuel revenue indexing program that is directly funding more than $700 million in roadway projects and leveraging more than a billion dollars in new infrastructure for our community. Tina’s collaborative spirit and proven track record will be valuable assets as the RTC takes on the new role of core administrator of Southern Nevada Strong, the first comprehensive regional plan for our community.
Under Quigley’s direction, significant enhancements have been made to the RTC transit system, improving workforce mobility and accessibility for two million residents and more than 41 million visitors. In recent years, the RTC launched eight rapid transit and express bus routes, a new residential route, and a transit pass program for university students and staff. The RTC also added three transit terminals with commuter park-and-ride lots, a platinum LEED-certified transit hub in downtown Las Vegas, and hundreds of new bus shelters. As a result of Quigley’s management, the National Transit Database named the RTC one of the most efficient transit providers in the nation.
Quigley, a licensed pilot, holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Aviation Business and Planning from Embry Riddle Aeronautical University. In recognition of her professional achievements, Quigley received the Woman of Distinction Award for Government Services by the National Association of Women Business Owners and the Carolyn M.
