How often do you get to tell the government if they got a plan right? Well, now you can. This is your turn to tell us if we got it right in On Board, the future transportation plan for the Las Vegas Valley.
Why should you care? Nothing is more foundational to community building than our transportation infrastructure. It’s how people and goods move around our community, get to their jobs, to school and live their lives. Just think about how much time you spend traveling from place to place every day.
On Board has 8 major strategies to transform transportation over the next two decades based on the input we received from our community. Now, we need you to tell us if we got it all right by taking a brief survey at OnBoardSNV.com to rate (from 1 to 5 stars) the importance of each of the 8 strategies.
This week’s feature is diving into two of the particular strategies: building high capacity transit and expanding traditional transit service.
High Capacity Transit (HCT)
- Faster, more frequent and convenient transit service on high demand routes via:
- Light Rail
- Bus Rapid Transit – a light rail-like service with buses
- Rapid Bus – a mix of transit options.
Approximately 200 miles of HCT on 18 busy routes
Expand traditional transit service to maximize access to jobs and housing
- Expand transit service so that 75% of the region’s residents are within 1/2-mile of bus service
- Focus in fast growing and new areas
- More frequent service on high-demand routes
- On-demand services through partnerships with rideshare companies like Uber and Lyft.
What do you think? Can HCT help your commute? Do you live somewhere in the valley that currently doesn’t have transit service? How do you want to get around the valley? Tell us what you think about these recommendations via a very brief survey online at OnBoardSNV.com and you’ll be enter to win prizes including gift cards and Vegas Golden Knights tickets.
