LAS VEGAS – The Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC) provides convenient public transit service access to Southern Nevada Health District (SNHD) COVID-19 vaccination locations. If you have an appointment for a vaccine at one of the local SNHD sites, you can get there using fixed route public transit, or by appointment if you are certified for paratransit service.

“As the public transportation provider for our community, the RTC’s ability to provide access to designated COVID-19 vaccination sites is critical,” said M.J. Maynard, RTC CEO. “Many of our riders are qualified to receive the vaccine now, and we want to be sure they have the ability to get there as safely and conveniently as possible.”

Individuals should visit southernnevadahealthdistrict.org to determine vaccination eligibility, locate a vaccination site and make an appointment. Once you have an appointment, visit rtcsnv.com/coronavirus for a full list of SNHD vaccination locations and accessible routes, or use the rideRTC mobile app for contactless trip planning and payment.
