Our Report Card

The RTC’s vision is to provide a safe, accessible, and efficient regional transportation network that enhances the quality of life for Southern Nevada’s residents and visitors. Transit is an important component of this vision, as it helps to reduce traffic congestion, while providing access for customers to get to work, school, home and social activities. Below are annual highlights of the transit service as it pertains to Fiscal Year 2023 ( July 2022 – June 2023).
