Las Vegas, Nev. — The Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC) is working with community partners to host a resource event at the Bonneville Transit Center in downtown Las Vegas. Approximately 9,000 customers visit the Bonneville Transit Center each weekday, making it an ideal location to provide a variety of social services to transit riders and the nearby community.

WHAT: Nevada Homeless Alliance Pop-up Connect Event
In partnership with Clark County Social Services and the RTC, this event will connect individuals and families with on-site social services including housing assessments, employment resources, ID restoration, legal aid, veteran services, vision and dental care, behavioral health support, insurance, showers, food, clothing, pet care, and counseling.

WHEN: Tuesday, April 18, 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

WHERE: Bonneville Transit Center, 101 E. Bonneville Ave

The BTC is located adjacent to an area of persistent poverty and one of the more densely populated food deserts in the region, making it an ideal location to offer programming that expands access to critical resources and services.

In August 2020, the RTC Board adopted the “Southern Nevada Coordinated Public Transit-Human Services Transportation Plan,” which suggested co-locating services at transportation hubs. Providing services at a neighborhood level rather than the regional level reduces travel time and cost; reduces strain on the regional transportation network; helps individuals more easily access services; and better facilitates integration of services among providers.
