Nevada’s RTC celebrates 20 years

Posted on December 6, 2012

The Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC) celebrated its 20th anniversary on Dec. 5. Leaders of the RTC highlighted two decades of progress and improvements to the RTC transit system that carries nearly 60 million passengers throughout the valley annually.

Overall, the RTC today manages more than 35 bus routes, close to 4,000 bus stops and carries over 179,000 bus riders daily. The RTC has one of the most efficient transit systems in the country and is the 19th busiest transit system in the nation.

“As our valley grew, so did our transit system,” added Tina Quigley, GM of the RTC. “Twenty years ago, we had a fraction of the transit routes we have today and carried about a third of the 60 million riders we now carry per year. We are continuing to build our transit system to serve the changing needs of our community.”

Quigley added that the valley’s population has grown by 133% in the past two decades, and local traffic volumes grew even faster with an approximate 189% increase.

To mark the anniversary, the RTC provided free Krispy Kreme Doughnuts to riders and drivers at RTC transit facilities earlier this week. Additionally, representatives of the RTC, including Quigley, visited with riders at RTC transit centers, thanking them for their patronage over the past 20 years.
