Services For Senior Citizens

The RTC is honored to provide services that help ensure a better quality of life for all of our residents.

Senior Citizens Helping Each Other Walk

Silver STAR

A growing population of senior citizens in Las Vegas and an increasing demand for mobility encouraged or led the RTC to establish Silver STAR & FDR. For this reason, the RTC works with valley seniors to identify neighborhood routes to help meet their mobility needs. The service is open to the entire community, but was designed with senior citizens in mind. The service stops at senior living communities and various shopping areas.

Flexible Demand Response (FDR)

Flexible Demand Response (FDR) is a door-to-door transit service provided by the RTC. FDR allows residents to call and schedule rides on a public transit system that would not otherwise be available in their area. FDR intersects RTC fixed-route transportation routes throughout the service area, which allows riders to use fixed-route service to meet transportation needs that take them outside their neighborhood communities and throughout Clark County. The service is currently available in the Sun City Anthem, Sun City Summerlin, and Centennial Hills communities.
