This month, the RTC is celebrating 30 years of providing transit service to Southern Nevadans, a milestone that will be celebrated throughout 2023.
Southern Nevada has grown tremendously and so has our system! We started small, operating 10 routes, but today we have expanded service around the valley, providing more than 1.5 billion trips in just three decades! Whether it’s getting students to school, connecting employees to work, taking customers to businesses, or carrying fans to a Raiders or Golden Knights game, the RTC has been there, getting you to the places that matter most.
To kick off the celebration, the RTC hosted a press conference at the RTC’s Bonneville Transit Center (BTC) on Monday, Dec. 12, where community leaders including, Clark County Commissioner Justin Jones, City of Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman, and Clark County Commissioner Tick Segerblom joined RTC leadership to recognize several drivers and mechanics who have kept the community moving. We acknowledged the men and women with custom bus stop plaques to thank those who have kept our community moving, especially during times of challenge and change.
This week, we also brought the party to YOU, our customers, during several pop-up events at the BTC, South Strip Transit Terminal, and along busy routes, giving out free bus passes, treats, and hot chocolate sponsored by our community partner, Nevada Health Link!
