Traveling over the holiday doesn’t have to be a hassle. We are offering alternatives to help commuters avoid traffic congestion and frustration this Thanksgiving holiday, and urging everyone to plan ahead in anticipation of heavy traffic and delays in and around the city.
Drivers looking to avoid traffic congestion and delays should avoid traveling during peak travel times which are Saturday, Nov. 27 between 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. and Sunday, Nov. 28 between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m.
And if you’re planning to use public transit over the holiday weekend, please note that RTC buses will operate on a reduced Sunday schedule for all fixed-route transit service on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, Nov. 25. Individual route schedules are available on RTC’s webpage Transit Schedules & Maps. Riders can also plan trips and purchase passes through the agency’s free rideRTC app.
If you’re looking to do some holiday shopping, but don’t want to contend with traffic, RTC has you covered. Choose from any of our free park-and-ride facilities located throughout the valley that offer convenient access to transit and carpooling.
Another convenient option is the Deuce on the Strip! The buses runs every 15-20 minutes 24 hours a day to help riders move throughout the Las Vegas Strip.
For those who need to get to the airport, free parking is available at the Centennial Hills Transit Center or the South Strip Transit Terminal. Direct access to McCarran International Airport’s Ground Level Zero at Terminal 1 is available via the Centennial Express (CX) or Route 109 Maryland Parkway.
Spaces are available on a first-come, first-served basis at all park-and-ride locations. For more information on the RTC and how to travel over the holiday, visit rtcsnv.com/ways-to-travel.
