RTC Celebrates 30 Years Of Connecting Southern Nevadans Through Transit

Leaders of the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC) launched a year-long celebration to mark 30 years of providing transit service to Southern Nevadans, while keeping the community connected to jobs, schools, medical appointments, entertainment, and more.

“We’ve been connecting our community for 30 years, integrating public transit as the backbone of daily life for thousands of Southern Nevadans,” RTC CEO MJ Maynard said. “Whether it’s getting students to school, connecting employees to work, taking customers to businesses, or carrying fans to a Raiders or Golden Knights game, RTC has been there, providing 1.5 billion rides to connect people to the places that matter most.”

At a recent press conference, hosted at the RTC’s Bonneville Transit Center, officials recognized several drivers and mechanics who have kept the community moving for nearly three decades. The RTC acknowledged the drivers, mechanics, and transit service staff with custom bus stop plaques to promote their relentless pursuit of serving the community. Additionally, the RTC unveiled a commemorative bus wrap to mark the occasion.

The RTC will continue to celebrate the past, present and future of driving Southern Nevada forward with monthly initiatives focused on keeping the community connected, starting with a service expansion in late January to increase the reliability of transit for riders. Throughout 2023, the RTC will highlight sustainability, equity, infrastructure, entertainment, safety and more.

“Robust public transportation networks enhance communities, while attracting investment and economic development,” Clark County Commissioner Justin Jones said. “As we celebrate our past, and look to the future, we know investment in our transit system will elevate the quality of life for Southern Nevada’s residents and visitors.”
