Attention all veterans and active military members! The RTC will continue its tradition of offering complimentary rides to veterans with a valid military or veterans ID, all day, on Veterans Day, Nov. 11, 2023.  

Here in Southern Nevada, the RTC offers several programs to ensure transportation is accessible for veterans across the valley.

  • Veterans Reduced Fare Program enables U.S. Armed Force veterans residing in Clark County to receive a 50% discount on regular transit fares. Veterans must obtain an RTC Veterans ID Card.
  • Veterans Medical Transportation Network (VMTN) is an appointment-only, door-to-door transportation option for veterans and their dependents to and from medical appointments at no cost. Registration is required.
  • Downtown & Veterans Medical Center Express (DVX) provides direct transit access from the RTC’s Bonneville Transit Center to the front door of the North Las Vegas Veterans Administration (VA) Medical Center. Additional RTC transit routes access other federal medical facilities, such as the O’Callaghan Military Medical Center and various VA primary care clinics.
