As general manager of the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada, Tina Quigley knows what it means to think big.  In a city of 2.1 million residents and 42 million annual visitors, Quigley is at the forefront of visionary thinking and planning for the future. She recognizes that an enhanced multi-modal and technologically advanced transportation infrastructure will help ensure that Southern Nevada can continue to attract tourists, residents and new business. She has embraced and pushed for sweeping technological advances; she has advocated for future planning; and she has built critical partnerships to well position the region for ongoing and sustained economic vibrancy.

With more than 25 years of experience in air and ground transportation management and a licensed pilot herself, Quigley leads the only agency nationwide that is solely responsible for a region’s public transit system, traffic management, roadway design, construction funding and transportation planning. In fact, the National Transit Database named the RTC as one of the most efficient transit providers in the nation, an accolade and distinction that speak volumes about Quigley’s leadership.

A rising star in the national transportation industry, Quigley is on the leading edge of improving how residents, workers and visitors travel the Las Vegas valley. Working with more than a dozen regional partners, she oversees the administration of Southern Nevada Strong, a federally recognized, collaborative regional plan to build and invest in complete communities that provide access to diverse employment opportunities, affordable housing, quality education and sustainable transportation choices.  Simultaneously, she led the charge in developing with the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority and local leaders the Transportation Investment Business Plan that recommends changes to improve how people travel to and from McCarran International Airport, the resort corridor and convention center.

Southern Nevada is setting the pace for testing new technologies that can move people and goods more effectively and save the lives of motorists and pedestrians. Quigley’s leadership alongside the Nevada Center for Advanced Mobility (NCAM) and Nevada Institute for Autonomous Systems is advancing the development and eventual deployment of Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CAVs).  These vehicles will be able to communicate with RTC’s integrated traffic signal system and help transform southern Nevada’s urban landscape by creating a more connected network for motorists, transit riders and freight operators

She has long recognized the foundational importance of an efficient, more modern transportation infrastructure to economic development. Of particular note is her leadership with the business community, local governments and community residents to secure fuel revenue indexing to generate more than $700 million to fund roadway improvements, traffic signals and bicycle and pedestrian safety initiatives.

A former manager at McCarran International Airport, one of the nation’s busiest and most active airports, Quigley holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Aviation Business and Planning from Embry Riddle Aeronautical University. She is the recipient of numerous awards for her significant professional achievements, including the Woman of Distinction Award for Government Services by the National Association of Women Business Owners, the Carolyn M. Sparks Founders Award from the Nevada International Women’s Forum and 2012 Women in Transportation from Metro Magazine for her bold vision and leadership.

Aside from her work, Quigley directs her energy, passion and commitment into making the Las Vegas Valley a vibrant community. These include:

  • Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority Host Committee
  • International Women’s Forum
  • Western Regional Alliance (WRA)
  • Southern Nevada Regional Planning Coalition (SNRPC) – Technical Committee
  • Southern Nevada Strong
  • Nevada Institute of Autonomous Systems
  • Nevada Center for Advanced Mobility
  • United States Department of Transportation’s Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) – Program Advisory Committee
  • Southern Nevada Tourism Infrastructure Committee (SNTIC)
