Transit Services

The RTC launched its public transit system in 1992 and currently provides service on 39 routes with more than 400 vehicles. In FY 2020, RTC transit carried more than 56 million passengers in the greater Las Vegas Valley. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires the RTC offer Paratransit service within, and three-quarters of a mile beyond, the fixed route service area. Specialized transit services designed for veterans and seniors are also available. View the RTC transit routes here.

S.A.F.E. Program

The Securement Assistance For Everyone (S.A.F.E.) program is a free and voluntary program designed to provide better securement for people using mobility devices on public transportation. The program is meant to ensure that mobility devices are secured properly in the safest place to minimize injury and damage. The transit operator will attach the vehicle’s securement system to the marked areas of your mobility device where the straps on the device are placed and the vehicle’s securement system will be tightened. Securement is mandatory, however, straps are not mandatory and riders cannot be refused transportation if they do not have them. To make an appointment to have straps or tape installed on your mobility device, please call (702) 676-1767 or TDD (702) 676-1834.

Transit Watch

The Transit Watch campaign is a nationwide safety and security awareness program designed to encourage the active participation of transit passengers and employees in working together to maintain a safe transit environment. The campaign provides information and instructions to transit passengers and employees so that they know what to do and who to contact in the event of an emergency in a transit setting. Transit Watch invites riders and employees to be the “eyes and ears” of their local transit system. Transit Watch was developed by the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Transit Administration (FTA) in partnership with the American Public Transportation Association (APTA), the Community Transportation Association of America (CTAA), the Amalgamated Transit Union (ATU) and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Transportation Security Administration (TSA).

Be on the alert for suspicious situations:


If you spot an unattended package, look for the following:

  • Placement in an out-of-the-way location;
  • Individuals in the act of abandoning the package and hastily departing the area;
  • Unusual attached batteries, wires, tanks, bottles or bags that might contain chemicals;
  • An attached message;
  • Nearby individuals showing signs of illness or distress; and
  • A suspicious cloud, mist, gas, vapor, odor or seeping fluid.

If you spot any suspicious individuals engaged in questionable activity, look for the following:

  • Visible signs of nervousness;
  • Excessive sweating;
  • Sprayer bottles or aerosol canisters; and
  • Inappropriate clothing that is excessively baggy or too heavy in warm weather.

To Report Suspicious Activity:

The RTC established a dedicated hotline, 702-598-EYES (3937) for transit riders to call with reports of suspicious behavior. The hotline is being managed by Marksman Security, the operator will transfer all applicable calls to the appropriate law enforcement authority. You can also e-mail the RTC directly at [email protected].

Human Trafficking Prevention

Human trafficking is a form of modern slavery that occurs across the globe. The National Human Trafficking Hotline ranks Nevada as 13th in number of trafficking cases reported.

Traffickers rely on the transportation industry in every phase of human trafficking, from recruitment to the delivery of victims to buyers. Public transit agencies may come in contact with victims on a regular basis, which is why we applied for and received the Federal Transit Agency ‘s (FTA) “Innovations in Transit Public Safety” grant to support efforts in combatting human trafficking.

All RTC front-line employees, transit operators and security officers are trained to help identify human trafficking victims and assist. The program includes partnerships with the University of Nevada, Las Vegas to evaluate the training, and FirstMed Health & Wellness to provide comprehensive wrap-around relief services once a victim is identified.

The RTC kicked off an awareness campaign in January 2021 for National Slavery & Human Trafficking Prevention Month which is featured across the valley’s transit stops and hubs, inside and outside of buses, on digital billboards and on social media platforms.


What to do if you, or someone you know believe is being trafficked while at a transit stop, center or vehicle:

  • Approach an RTC employee, transit operator or security officer
  • Report it anonymously on the RTC Transit Watch app
  • Call the FirstMed 24/7 hotline at 1-844-460-0003
