The Las Vegas Valley is an urban community of nearly 2 million residents and an internationally recognized destination with nearly 40 million annual visitors. Flamingo Road is a 15-mile corridor and one of the area’s principal arterials. Daily travel activity includes nearly 75,000 vehicles and 13,000 transit patrons passing through the heart of its hospitality-based economic engine at the Las Vegas Strip (Las Vegas Boulevard).
Implementation of this Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) project would enhance access between the many residential, commercial, and employment centers, including the Resort Corridor, as well as the nearly 28,000-student University of Nevada, Las Vegas campus. The project’s numerous elements will facilitate improved access for pedestrians, bicyclists, and transit patrons and foster a livable community through sustainable transportation options. The Flamingo BRT Project is ready for immediate implementation and is critical for the economic competitiveness of the region.
