Reduced Fare Photo ID Card Program

New Reduced Fare ID Cards Beginning December 1, 2016

The Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC) is upgrading all ticket vending machines and vehicle fare box units to improve your customer experience. As a result the RTC will implement a new reduced fare card program beginning Thursday, Dec. 1, 2016. In order to purchase reduced fare from this equipment and the new rideRTC transit app, you must obtain a new Reduced Fare, Mobility Trained or Veterans identification card (ID) from the RTC in person. Current ID cards will remain valid through Dec. 31, 2017 and can be used when purchasing reduced fare at vendors or in person at the Bonneville Transit Center (BTC).
