Service Change 2020

Sunday, October 4, 2020 Transit Service Change

Thank you for providing your input and comments regarding the proposed transit service changes scheduled for Sunday, October 4. Your input matters and we heard you. We received more than 4,300 comments and we were able to make planned service modifications based on the overwhelming feedback we received.

Specifically, routes 207 and 209 will continue to operate on calendar weekdays on an adjusted schedule; and the Henderson & Downtown Express (HDX) will continue to serve Sunset and Stephanie, and be renamed to route 402, Henderson/Boulder City.

Unfortunately, we still have to move forward with eliminating the Westcliff Airport Express (WAX) and the Strip & Downtown Express (SDX), as well as routing modifications on the Sahara Express, Route 104 Valley View and the Centennial Express as we continue to experience a severe drop in funding. However, with your input we were able to make several adjustments while still realizing some required cost savings.

Please review the final service changes below that will go into effect on Sunday, October 4, 2020.
