Click to Tweet: Heads up, transit riders! In observance of #LaborDay, @RTCSNV will operate on a Sunday schedule on 9/6. Stay up-to-date on all bus alerts and changes here.

LAS VEGASThe Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC) will operate its fixed route transit service on a Sunday schedule in observance of Labor Day, Monday, Sept. 6. Those traveling in and around Southern Nevada can anticipate heavy traffic and delays throughout the weekend.

Due to the holiday schedule and a workforce shortage, transit riders may experience service delays along their commute, and are encouraged to plan for extra travel time. As riders map out their trips this holiday weekend, the RTC is urging customers to subscribe to text and email alerts through the RTC website, and download the rideRTC to get real-time alerts and stay informed on any route delays or changes. The RTC is committed to communicating all service delays in a timely manner so customers can better plan their trips around the valley.

Additionally, the RTC is working closely with its contractors to actively recruit more drivers and security officers. Those interested may apply with RTC contractors at keolisnorthamerica.commvtransit.com or marksmansecurity.com

As a reminder, federal mask mandates are still in effect on all RTC buses and inside the transit centers. For more information on the RTC and how to travel this holiday weekend, visit rtcsnv.com/ways-to-travel.
