Tips for Requesting a Ride

Please have the following information available for the Customer Care agent:

  • Your name
  • The day and date of your trip
  • Your pick-up address (this must include exact street address, building or facility name, also include apartment number, building number, suite number and gate codes, if applicable) and your pick-up phone number
  • Your destination address (this must include exact street address, building or facility name, also include apartment number, building number, suite number and gate codes if applicable) and your destination phone number, if available
  • The time you would like to be picked up from your pick-up address or the time you would like to arrive at your destination, if you have an appointment. You may not request both a pick-up and an arrival time. You may choose one or the other.
  • The type of mobility aide(s) you will be using*
  • The number of people traveling – will you be taking a companion or Personal Care Attendant?**

*Passengers cannot travel using a mobility device unless it has been previously recorded in your certification file. Any changes to your mobility device requirements or Personal Care Attendant needs must be updated with the Certification Office prior to the date of your call.

**You must be authorized by the certification department to take a Personal Care Attendant. Companions are required to pay full fare.

You should have a pen or pencil handy to write down the Customer Care agent’s name, date and window times of your pickups. Keep in mind, even if all you need to do is drop off or pick up something, the driver cannot wait for you. You will need to schedule two separate trips.

Other Important Tips

  • Customers may schedule rides up to three days in advance. Riders are encouraged to provide as much advance notice as possible (with in three days).
  • Trips may be scheduled, cancelled, or confirmed online at myRTCPara.rtcsnv.com.
  • For the fastest service when scheduling your trip, call between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Here’s a big secret you can pass on to your friends: If you want to spend less time waiting to speak with an agent, try calling between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.
  • The demand for Paratransit trips peaks from 6 to 9:30 a.m. and 1 to 5 p.m. on weekdays. You will generally have the best selection of pick-up times if you request a trip outside of these “peak” hours.
  • Paratransit passengers should be ready to depart at any time during their scheduled pick-up window.  If the Paratransit vehicle arrives early, passengers are allowed to board early, but do not have to board ahead of the scheduled window. Passengers WILL NOT be penalized for not boarding early.  If the driver arrives early, the driver will wait until the passenger’s pick-up window begins.  Once the window begins, a passenger has five minutes to board the vehicle.
  • There are designated Paratransit stops at major locations such as shopping malls, hotels, casinos, hospitals college campuses and some apartment complexes. Please verify with the Customer Care agent where the vehicle will drop off and pick up. For safety reasons, the drivers will not deviate from these designated stops.
  • A Paratransit trip SHOULD  be comparable in length to an identical trip on the fixed route system, including the time necessary to travel to the bus stop, waiting for the bus, the actual riding time, time to transfer, and travel from the final stop to your ultimate destination.
  • There is no restroom access on the Paratransit vehicles, and drivers cannot stop.
  • Please keep your information current and notify the RTC of any change of address, phone number, emergency contact information, etc.

Please Note:

  • Trips may originate and end from any location within the RTC’s ADA Paratransit service area. Rides may be one-way, round-trip or multiple rides. All pick-ups and destinations need to be located within the RTC’s ADA Paratransit service area.
  • No changes can be made to any trips on the day of your scheduled ride, including the time of travel or any changes to the addresses.

The RTC’s Customer Care agents will do their best to accommodate the times you request; however, alternate times may be offered. As Paratransit is a shared ride service, the Customer Care agent is allowed to negotiate the times of your trip within an hour of your requested pick-up time. Times may be offered as early as an hour before or as late as an hour after your requested pick-up time.

The interval between pick-up times on the same day is recommended to be at least two hours. For example, if your scheduled pick-up time is 10 to 10:30 a.m., it is recommended that you do not schedule your next ride until noon to 12:30 p.m. This will help to ensure you have arrived at your first destination with enough time to travel on your second or return ride.


Subscription service is available for trips that are considered consistent and repetitive over a period of at least 30 days. Once the subscription service goes into effect, there is no need for additional reservation calls.

There are three categories of subscription requests, each with different criteria:

  1. Weekly trips – will occur at least three (3) times over a seven day period
  2. Weekday trips – will occur at least two (2) times, Monday through Friday
  3. Weekend trips – will occur at least one (1) time on Saturday and/or Sunday

To be considered for subscription service, a person must demonstrate a pattern of no excessive cancellations or no shows. Requests may be made by calling a RTC Customer Care agent at (702) 228- 4800 or (702) 676-1834 (TDD) for hearing impaired.

The RTC offers subscription services as an optional component of service. Subscription services are allowed under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 but not mandated. Your request may be placed on a waiting list. When a space becomes available, the individual will be notified. Requests are maintained for four months, after which, you may re-apply. To avoid assessment of no-show points please remember to cancel subscriptions that are no longer needed. Subscription service with excessive cancellations and /or no shows will not be continued.

These subscription trips will be monitored and may be modified to improve efficiency. If a change in pick-up time occurs, you will be notified of the change two weeks prior to the change going into effect.

Arrivals & Late Arrivals

Passengers should be ready to depart at any time during their scheduled pick-up window and be available for travel when the vehicle arrives. Drivers are instructed to wait five (5) minutes after their arrival and will not leave before. If the driver arrives early, the driver will wait until your pick-up window begins and then give you five (5) minutes to board.

Gated Communities

If a pick-up location is within a gated community, it is the customer’s responsibility to arrange entry for the vehicle. When you schedule a trip, please confirm the gate code. Any changes should be reported to RTC ADA Paratransit Services at (702) 228-4800 or (702) 676-1834 (TDD). If a vehicle is unable to enter the pick-up area or the customer fails to meet the vehicle outside of the community, the customer’s trip will be designated as a no show. Please note that some gated communities may have designated pick-up/drop-off location(s) that cannot be changed. Please check with the Customer Care agent when you are scheduling a ride.

RTC Paratransit Same-Day-Service 

RTC offers ADA certified riders an option for non-emergency, unplanned medical needs. Using the same-day-service request program, RTC Paratransit riders can schedule non-life threatening medical trips only. Trips can be for any medical reason, for example, pharmacy, therapy, etc. The same-day-service is provided to ADA certified riders within the ADA service area. There is no additional charge for a same-day-service ride; the fare is the same as RTC ADA Paratransit Service. Same-day service is provided on a space available basis and ride times are not guaranteed. The RTC recommends that you make every effort to pre-plan and schedule your medical trips in advance.

Same-day-service ride hours are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to midnight. No weekends or holidays. To schedule a same-day-service request, call (702) 228-4800 and select option 3 “same-day-service request” to schedule your ride. Reservations can be made Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Paratransit users have the ability to book, check the status or cancel a previously scheduled Paratransit ride at myRTCPara.rtcsnv.com. Or you can call our Paratransit Customer Care office at (702) 228-4800.

RTC ADA Paratransit Services may contract with other providers for transportation service. The Customer Care agent is unable to tell you what type of vehicle will be used for your trip. All vehicles used through this service are required to display an RTC sign on their vehicle. If you do not see the sign, ask the operator to show it to you.

To cancel a scheduled trip, call RTC Paratransit Customer Care at (702) 228-4800 or (702) 676- 1834 (TDD).

A “no show” occurs when a customer does not board the vehicle within five minutes of the vehicle’s arrival or when a customer cancels a ride within the 30-minute ready window. Each no show is counted as one (1) penalty point.

A “late cancellation” occurs when a customer cancels a trip less than two hours before the start of the 30-minute ready window. Each late cancellation is counted as half (1/2) of a penalty point.

In any 30-day period, any customer who has “no showed” or “late cancelled” at least 10% of those trips will receive a suspension notice. A trip cancelled in accordance with our policy, i.e., more than two hours before the start of the pick-up window, will not be counted in the total number of trips booked, and the client will not receive penalty points.

Additionally, to ensure suspension only applies to riders who have an established pattern or practice of scheduling trips and not taking them, a customer must accumulate three (3) or more penalty points to receive a suspension. A customer will be subject to suspension only if both the minimum 10% of trips scheduled were “no showed” or “late cancelled” and the minimum number of penalty points are reached during the 30-day period.

The length of a customer’s suspension will adhere to the following schedule:

  • Upon a first violation within a calendar year, a customer receives a warning letter.
  • Second violation: 7-day (1-week) suspension
  • Third violation: 14-day (2-week) suspension (Loss of Subscription)
  • Fourth violation: 21-day (3-week) suspension (Loss of Subscription)
  • Fifth and subsequent violations: 28-day (4-week) suspension(Loss of Subscription)

Violations of this policy will result in suspension, per the above schedule. If a no show or late cancellation is due to circumstances beyond your control, please call the RTC’s Paratransit Customer Care department at (702) 228-4800 to explain the circumstance, and request the review and/or removal of the no show or late cancellation.

RTC will notify riders of all points assessed to their record. Prior to sending a suspension letter, RTC will review all no shows and late cancellations to 18 ensure that the process was followed properly and an accurate count is represented. Any no show or late cancellation that is found to be in error will be removed from the customer’s account.

In the event you are a no show for a ride, the return ride or any additional ride(s) scheduled for that day will not be automatically canceled. Please call (702) 228-4800 or (702) 676-1834 (TDD) and select option 3 to cancel any return/additional rides you had scheduled that will no longer be needed.

Right of Appeal

If you dispute a suspension under this policy, you have the right to file an appeal. Appeal requests may be filed by the deadline per the instructions included with your notice of suspension. If you miss the appeal request deadline, your Paratransit service will be suspended on the date listed on your notice of service suspension.

  • Seatbelts are recommended for passengers on vehicles and the driver will assist with fastening if requested.
  • No eating is allowed on the vehicle, and drinks must be in spill-proof covered containers.
  • Smoking is prohibited on the vehicle.

  • In order to ride, pets must be in a secure cage and held by or placed at the feet of the passenger.

All vehicles used for service in the RTC system are 100 percent ADA accessible.

Vehicle operators will assist customers in boarding and deboarding the Paratransit vehicle as needed.

All mobility devices such as wheelchairs, scooters and three-wheel carts must be secured in the vehicle and conform to the ADA definition of a mobility device. Accessibility to ADA Paratransit Service vehicles will be discussed with each person during the eligibility process.

The RTC offers mobility device users a free and voluntary program designed to identify securement locations to assist drivers in quickly and safely securing the equipment on the bus. Please contact (702) 676-1767 or (702) 676-1834 (TDD) and leave a message for more information and reference the Securement Assistance for Everyone (SAFE) program.

If your condition changes in a manner that requires you to use an assistive mobility device or change the type of mobility device used during your initial functional assessment, it must be reported to the RTC Certification Office at (702) 228-4800 or (702) 676-1815. Due to this change in your condition, you may be required to undergo an additional assessment to determine what effect this change may have on your functional ability. Your current eligibility status may be altered as a result of your new functional assessment.

  • As stated in the Passenger Code of Conduct, the RTC prohibits passengers from taking an animal onto a vehicle unless that animal is (a) a service animal trained to assist a person with a disability or (b) secured in a cage sufficient to contain the animal.
  • Service animals are welcome and ride free-of-charge.
  • A disruptive service animal will be treated according to the Passenger Code of Conduct.
  • Service dogs must sit on the floor or on the passenger’s lap. They may not occupy a passenger seat.
  • The RTC does not allow for the transport of deceased animals.
  • Children under six years old must be accompanied by a responsible party.
  • Children under six years old or who weigh less than 60 pounds should be secured in an approved child safety seat provided by the customer.
  • Strollers must be collapsed to fit between the seat and the customer. Non-collapsible strollers are prohibited.
  • For safety reasons, children capable of sitting on their own must sit in a seat and not on an adult’s lap.

A Personal Care Attendant (PCA) may ride free-of-charge when accompanying an individual certified by the RTC Certification Department. The need for a PCA will be determined during your evaluation appointment.

One companion may also accompany an eligible rider. A companion will be charged the same fare as the eligible rider. Let the Customer Care agent know at the time the reservation is made if you will be traveling with a companion, a PCA or both.

Customers determined as unable to be left unattended (based on age, cognitive limitations or special request of the responsible party) may schedule rides and ride unattended; however, arrangements must be made to have a responsible party meet the Paratransit vehicle at each location.

The “unattended passenger” form must be completed and on file. Please contact the RTC Certification Department at (702) 228-4800 or (702) 676-1815 if this service is required.

The driver will only wait five minutes for the responsible party to meet the Paratransit vehicle. If no one arrives, the driver will notify the RTC and continue on his/her route. The RTC will attempt to reach the designated emergency contact person. If the customer is not met by the end of the route, he/she will be returned to the bus yard. The responsible party will be required to pick-up the customer at the bus yard and must show proper identification. The customer will not be left unattended, and the police may be notified to assist in locating a responsible party.

Failure to have a responsible party meet the vehicle is a violation of the RTC Unattended Passenger policy, and customers are subject to suspension.

Customers are permitted to carry on only the number of bags that they are able to manage independently without the assistance of the driver. Due to space limitations and the time it takes to board the vehicle, the number of shopping bags is restricted to those that can be easily handled by the customer and carried aboard without delaying the vehicle. The carry-on items must fit within a certain space either on your lap or in front of your area. If a customer brings more than he/she is able to manage independently, it will be the customer’s choice on whether to board with a manageable amount of items and find alternative transportation to carry the remaining packages, or decline the trip. Please note points may be assessed for declined trips. See no show policy.

Shopping carts or any type of equipment used to assist with transporting packages, groceries, clothing or other items are allowed on a limited basis. When space is limited, priority must be given to RTC ADA Paratransit wheelchair passengers. Carts can be no larger than 28.5” high by 12” deep by 15.5” wide. The customer must bring a securement device (for example a bungee cord) to secure his/her cart. The trip must be reserved and approved with the cart, or the driver will be unable to transport the customer with his/her shopping cart.

The RTC desires to maintain and operate a safe, efficient, and effective public transit system. For the safety and comfort of all persons who interact with its public transit system, the RTC has established this policy to address the conduct of persons using RTC vehicles and facilities.

The RTC recognizes that there may be circumstances during which an individual’s disability or medical condition may cause a person to unknowingly and/or unintentionally violate this Passenger Code of Conduct Policy. For this and other reasons, the RTC investigates each violation individually.

RTC ADA Paratransit Services provides “door-to- door” service. The driver will come to your residential door, but will not enter into lobbies of apartments, professional buildings, retail establishments or commercial properties to let you know the bus has arrived. Please watch for the vehicle. There are some locations and/or situations where the driver cannot leave the vehicle. When picking-up or dropping off on private property, there are often designated areas where a driver is permitted to stop. In order for us to serve you, it is necessary for you to wait for the vehicle at the marked stop. In many cases, you will be advised during your reservation of the appropriate location to wait for the vehicle.

Drivers will assist passengers who are unable to maneuver themselves from their door or designated pick-up location to the vehicle, provided it is safe for them to do so.

Drivers are Allowed to: 

  • Maneuver your manual wheel-chair if you need assistance from outside your door to the vehicle
  • Lend a steady arm if you need assistance
  • Provide directions or act as a sighted guide to/from the vehicle if you are visually impaired. If you feel you need this type of assistance, please notify the driver.

Drivers are Not Allowed/ Required to: 

  • Operate or push your electric mobility device (for example, electric wheelchair or scooter)
  • Operate or push your equipment or shopping cart up or down stairs or steep inclines
  • Cross residential thresholds
  • Lift or carry riders
  • Carry packages or other items

Drivers are trained not to perform these activities. Please do not make these requests of your driver.

The RTC does not discriminate on the basis of disability in admission or access to its programs, services, or activities; in treatment of individuals with disabilities; or in any aspect of RTC operations.

If you have reason to believe that a client, customer or citizen may need auxiliary aids and services to access a RTC program, service, or activity, advise the person that such assistance will be provided when appropriate and will be free of charge.

This offer and advice must also be made when a client, customer or citizen, due to a visual, hearing or speech impairment, requests an auxiliary aid or service for self (or on behalf of any other qualified individual) in seeking access to RTC services. Any questions or complaints regarding compliance are to be directed to our attention:

RTC paratransit utilizes a dedicated fleet of ADA-accessible buses and vans. RTC paratransit does not accommodate requests or exclusions for specific vehicles within our fleet. Our accessible vehicles are equipped to transport eligible paratransit customers, including those who use wheelchairs and scooters requiring a lift or ramp to board a vehicle.


This determination is in accordance with 49 CFR Parts 37 & 38 – Department of Transportation (DOT) ADA Regulations Appendix E to Part 37—Reasonable Modification Requests, 9. Dedicated vehicles or special equipment in a vehicle. A paratransit passenger's request for special equipment (e.g., the installation of specific hand rails or a front seat in a vehicle for the passenger to avoid nausea or back pain) can be denied so long as the requested equipment is not required by the Americans with Disabilities Act or the Department's rules. Likewise, a request for a dedicated vehicle (e.g.,to avoid residual chemical odors) or a specific type or appearance of vehicle (e.g., a sedan rather than a van, in order to provide more comfortable service) can be denied. In all of these cases, the Department views meeting the request as involving a fundamental alteration of the provider's service.
