Defeat The Heat




Summertime is here again,
and so are triple-digit temperatures.


Alfredo, our assistant transit ambassador supervisor, gives a crash course on
how to use the RTC transit system smartly and safely.

These simple tips will help you keep cool:
Stay hydrated

Drink lots of water and use spill-proof containers on buses.



Minimize your wait time

Arrive at your stop no more than 10 mins before the schedule stop time.


Download rideRTC, use RideTracker or text “RideRTC” followed by a space and your stop ID number to 41411.

Wear sunscreen

Don’t forget to reapply!



Cover Up

Wear lightweight clothing and a hat. Use an umbrella.



Plan ahead

Download rideRTC on iPhone or Android to plan your trip, buy your pass, and find your bus.

Stay cool at a chill station.

The RTC is partnering with Three Square, KLUC 98.5 FM and Dasani to provide complimentary water at “chill stations” across the Las Vegas Valley. Distribution begins during the hottest times of the day and ends when all water bottles have been handed out to riders.
