Las Vegas previews 2 new BRT routes

Posted on August 29, 2011

The Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) of Southern Nevada will preview the new Boulder Highway Express and the Henderson & Downtown Express transit services on September 1.

The new Boulder Highway Express and Henderson & Downtown Express services add to the RTC’s expanding network of rapid transit services. The RTC’s rapid transit services seek to provide enhanced connectivity throughout Southern Nevada and are designed with speed in mind.

The new Henderson & Downtown Express route will provide an express connection between Henderson and downtown Las Vegas. The Boulder Highway Express route will provide faster service through the Southeast portion of the valley connecting the Galleria at Sunset Mall to downtown Las Vegas. Both routes are scheduled to begin service on Sept. 18.

Both services will utilize the StreetCar vehicles that offer the look and feel of a light rail system, but with the flexibility of running on regular streets. The new routes will run in dedicated bus lanes along Boulder Highway from downtown Las Vegas to Tropicana Avenue and feature upgraded amenities and ticket vending machines at many locations.

These new express routes are part of the RTC’s growing rapid transit system to connect Southern Nevada and were funded in part by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act’s federal transit stimulus funding.
