LAS VEGAS – The Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC) is planning to expand the RTC Bike Share service area by adding one to three new stations in downtown Las Vegas. Before making any decisions on the new stations, locals are invited to provide their input on the desired locations based on four available spaces. The proposed stations include:
- Alta Drive, between Shadow Lane and Martin Luther King Boulevard
- East Fremont Street, between Bruce Street and North 21st Street
- Martin Luther King Boulevard, near Pinto Lane
- South 13th Street, near East Clark Avenue and The Center
Public input can be submitted by participating in the online survey by Friday, Sept. 24. Those who take the survey will be entered to win one of two $100 gift cards.
One station will be partially funded by a Southern Nevada Health District grant. The remaining stations will be contingent upon approval of additional funding.
The RTC Bike Share has 20 stations throughout downtown Las Vegas, with more than 200 bikes available. Since the RTC Bike Share launched in 2016 more than 76,000 passes have been sold, and over 176,000 trips have been taken. RTC Bike Share is an easy way for residents and tourists to ride to and from the many attractions, restaurants, bars and shops in the downtown Las Vegas area. Riders can also easily connect to the numerous RTC transit lines through the Bonneville Transit Center in downtown Las Vegas.
