FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: July 15, 2020
LAS VEGAS – The Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC) is reminding our community of their opportunity to provide input on proposed transit service changes, including route eliminations, routing adjustments and schedule changes, during a 60-day comment period. Opportunities to provide feedback include four upcoming public meetings where individuals can engage with staff virtually or in person to ask questions or voice their opinions:
VIRTUAL PUBLIC MEETINGS:
Tuesday, July 28, 2020
Wednesday, July 29, 2020
Transportation Access Advisory Committee (TAAC)
IN-PERSON PUBLIC MEETINGS:
Wednesday, Aug. 5, 2020
Bonneville Transit Center (BTC)
101 E. Bonneville Ave.
Las Vegas, NV 89101
7-9 a.m. & 5-7 p.m.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the RTC has seen a sharp decrease in critical funding and has proposed several transit service changes to help adjust for this revenue loss. Before a final plan is approved, we need to hear from the community.
A 60-day public comment period will remain open through Friday, Aug. 28. All details are available online at rtcsnv.com, posted on all transit vehicles and available at transit centers. RTC staff will continue to provide in-person outreach opportunities at busy stops and transit centers throughout the comment period.
For all of the proposed service change details, and to provide feedback via a brief survey, visit rtcsnv.com.
