rideRTC App Tap & GO

Visiting Las Vegas and want the flexibility to ride the bus when you want? Prefer to use cash but want the convenience of using the rideRTC app to pay for a single-ride? The new Tap & GO feature in the rideRTC app is for you!

rideRTC Tap & GO Features

RTC Tap & GO offers new flexibility and convenience that lets you purchase single-ride fares directly in the rideRTC app! With RTC Tap & GO, you can add funds using a credit or debit card, or using cash at a Cash To Mobile location. After you add funds, just scan the barcode on the main screen of the app when you board the bus and the appropriate single-ride fare is automatically deducted from your account balance.

Tap & GO is perfect for the traveler who only plans to take a single trip on transit, or isn’t sure exactly when they will make their return trip. This flexibility makes Tap & GO an especially convenient option for visitors using the Deuce on the Strip or in downtown Las Vegas. The feature is also available for those who don’t have a credit or debit card, as you can add funds to your account at select Cash To Mobile locations.

You can utilize your existing rideRTC account to access Tap & GO. Just log in as you normally would and use the new Tap & GO option displayed at the top of the app.

Follow these steps to set up Tap & GO in the rideRTC app:

  1. Download the rideRTC app
  2. Create an account or use your existing account
  3. Tap the Tap & GO banner
  4. Tap Register a Barcode

Once your Tap & GO account is set up:

  1. Add funds to your account using a credit/debit card or by visiting a Cash To Mobile location.
