Las Vegas RTC awards $1.9M contract for high-capacity transit plan

Posted on November 21, 2016


LAS VEGAS — The Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada awarded a $1.9 million contract to Nelson/NYGAARD Consulting to develop a “high-capacity transit plan” aimed at relieving congestion in Southern Nevada, including a light rail route that could connect McCarran International Airport, the Strip, and downtown Las Vegas, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

The company will release a report, scheduled for release by mid-2018, which will examine 25 heavily used corridors in Clark County, including the light-rail project under consideration for Maryland Parkway. Several “high-capacity” options also will be studied, including express commuter bus lines.

The study will compare the needs in Southern Nevada to light rail, streetcar, and other transit systems used in so-called “peer cities” in Los Angeles, Denver, Salt Lake City, Phoenix, San Diego, and Orlando. For the full story, click here.
