Silverado Stages launches overnight coach service between Vegas, Reno

Posted on August 7, 2017

Silverado Stages announced the addition of regular overnight ticketed transportation service on its Silverado Mainline route between Las Vegas and Reno in Nevada.

The Nevada Department of Transportation, with support from a Federal Transit Administration 5311f Rural Intercity Bus Grant, and Silverado Stages reinstituted a long dormant public transportation link for the small communities between Reno and Las Vegas in 2014. Since then, the service has operated daily in both directions only during daylight hours. Continued ridership growth has demonstrated need for night-time service, which allows residents to travel to the doctor, for work, or for shopping during the day and return home without needing a hotel room. Travel is on luxury motorcoaches with all the amenities for comfort and connectivity.

The Silverado Mainline service connects the Reno Airport, Reno Greyhound, Sparks — RTC, Carson City, Fallon, Hawthorne, Tonopah, Beatty, Pahrump, Las Vegas — RTC, and Las Vegas Greyhound. It is the only public transportation connecting this route and the small communities in between. This provides rural residents in the towns, unincorporated areas, military installations, Native American, and rural communities with comfortable, reliable and safe means of transportation day or night.

Additionally, the Silverado Mainline connects to the entire National Bus Transportation Network at Greyhound stations at each end, allowing a seamless ride to destinations throughout the U.S. and Canada. Local transit connections are also provided at each stop. Ticketing for all destinations is conveniently available online, with ticket prices ranging between $12 to $81 and accommodates ADA services, such as wheelchairs and service animals. Baggage and parcel shipping services are also available.

“The new Silverado Mainline schedule gives residents of rural Nevada more access to services in the Reno and Las Vegas areas, more conveniently and at lower cost. We are very excited to introduce this additional service to the Silver State,” said Tony Fiorini, sr. VP of Silverado Stages, who was instrumental in resurrecting the service back in 2014.

Also new for the Silverado Mainline are online connections with Google Transit and Apple Maps. This allows users to plan and purchase long distance trips and can also provide directions to Silverado Mainline pick-up and drop locations.
