Summertime heat is on in Southern Nevada and transit riders can chill with stops at “cool” places, and by following some sensible tips for staying healthy and safe. Riders can download the rideRTC app to plan their outings.
Splash back the heat at Henderson’s Cowabunga Bay, featuring exciting water slides. Or take in the relaxing coolness of Summerlin’s Wet ‘n’ Wild’s Lazy River. The RTC “water parks route” (Route 212) will get you both places!
Prefer your water frozen? Chill out with some summertime skating at the Golden Knights’ home – City National Arena – via RTC bus routes 206 Charleston Eastbound and SX-B Sahara Express Eastbound (Via Vegas Valley). You can also join a summertime hockey league or slide around during free skate times at the Henderson Silver Knights’ home – Lifeguard Arena – in downtown Henderson via RTC bus route 402.
While you’re out-and-about this summer, remember triple-digit temperatures are common between June and September in Southern Nevada, but staying safe is easy by following these simple tips:
- Drink plenty of water
- Avoid direct sunlight
- Dress in lightweight and light colored clothing
- Always wear sunscreen
For transit riders, it means using the rideRTC app to know exactly when your bus is arriving so you don’t have to wait for prolonged periods of time outside at the transit stop.
