Projects and Initiatives




The Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC) performs many transportation activities within the Southern Nevada region. As the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) for Southern Nevada, the RTC is helping to create sustainable communities. Truly sustainable communities support all types of transportation, including walking, biking, and transit. These alternative types of travel are key to reducing congestion in the Las Vegas Valley.
