Summer Heat Transit Safety

Las Vegas is just as famous for our soaring summer temperatures as we are for our casinos. To remind transit customers about summer heat safety while waiting for their bus, the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC), in partnership with radio stations KLUC 98.5 FM, KISF 103.5, and KWID 101.9, is providing complimentary water at ‘Chill Stations’ across the Las Vegas Valley. Water distribution begins during the hottest times of the day and ends when all water bottles have been distributed. See below for dates, times, and locations.

RTC transit riders can beat the summer heat during the hot summer months by following these simple tips:

  • Travel with plenty of water and use a spill-proof container on buses.
  • Minimize heat exposure by arriving at your stop no more than 10 minutes before the bus’s scheduled stop time. You can check your bus’s arrival time and location using our online RideTracker or text RideRTC followed by a space and your stop ID number to 41411.
  • Protect your skin by seeking shade at the bus stop, wearing a hat, bringing an umbrella and wearing sunscreen.
