LAS VEGAS – The Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC) is seeking feedback from the community about proposed transit fare and payment options that will help inform a report on fare equity that will be submitted to the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Transit Administration.

Through Friday, Nov. 3, the community is invited to take a short survey about a $4 Deuce on the Strip single-ride fare offered in the rideRTC app for tourists, paying for fare on board buses with credit or debit cards, and an account-based ticketing option where customers can pre-load a smart card.

“A fare equity analysis is an important assessment to ensure that any changes we make to our fare and payment structure do not have an unequal impact on minority and low-income populations,” said RTC Chief Executive Officer M.J. Maynard. “We want to hear from anyone and everyone who rides or may ride the RTC transit system. Your input will help us plan for easier, more convenient and equitable payment options.”

The public is invited to complete a short survey at rtcsnv.com. The RTC will raffle off 15-day passes and two (2) tickets to the Dec. 4 Vegas Golden Knights game vs. the St. Louis Blues following the close of the comment period on Nov. 3. The public can also provide comment during one of three meetings:
