Las Vegas' RTC launches new BRT line

Posted on April 8, 2010

The Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC) will be hosting a groundbreaking event for the ACE Green Line, the newest addition to the valley’s rapid transit service. U.S. Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.), U.S. Rep. Dina Titus (D-Nev.), RTC Board Chair and Clark County Commissioner Larry Brown, and RTC GM Jacob Snow will be in attendance.


The ACE Green Line will travel a 15-mile corridor that extends from downtown Las Vegas to Horizon Drive in Henderson. Like the ACE Gold Line, which began service on March 28, the ACE Green Line will have the look and feel of a light rail system but with the flexibility of running on regular streets, including in dedicated transit lanes. The new ACE Green Line will travel in dedicated curbside lanes from downtown Las Vegas to Tropicana Avenue and continue to Horizon Drive in mixed-flow traffic.


The ACE Green Line is one of several new rapid transit lines that the RTC is providing to connect Southern Nevada. The ACE Green Line will be built, thanks in part, to American Recovery and Reinvestment Act transit stimulus funding. Service on the ACE Green Line is anticipated to begin in 2011.
