LAS VEGAS – Effective Sunday, Jan. 29. 2023, The Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC) will implement a transit service change to improve reliability and timeliness across the transit system. Changes include new schedules and routing updates to help customers travel more efficiently throughout Southern Nevada. Additionally, on Monday, Jan. 16, RTC transit service will operate on a Saturday schedule in observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

“While the pandemic, supply chain issues, and a workforce shortage have been tough on everyone, we know our customers have felt the heaviest impact,” said M.J. Maynard, RTC chief executive officer. “Thanks to strong recruitment efforts made by our operating contractors, we are able to update select routes and extend service hours to better connect our community to work, school, entertainment and more.”   

The new changes have been developed to accommodate an increase in passengers, reduce travel times on busy routes, and mitigate road construction delays.

Service updates include:

  • New schedules will be implemented on routes 101, 103, 109, 110, 111, 115, 119, 120, 121, 201, 202, 203, 206, 207, 208, 209, 210, 212, 218, 219, 220, BHX, CX, and the SX.
  • Routes 111, 202, 217, SX-A, and the CX will have routing updates.
  • Route 121 will return to a 30-minute frequency during weekday daytime hours, shortening wait times for customers.
  • Route 401 will start service earlier in the morning and end service later in the evening to match the current hours of the Las Vegas North Premium Outlets.

As the RTC continues to improve service, passengers can get the most accurate information on bus arrival times by downloading the rideRTC app, texting “RideRTC” and the bus stop number to 41411, or by calling 702-228-RIDE.

Full details on the service change, including all updated schedules, can also be found at rtcsnv.com/servicechange.
