Keolis was awarded a contract to operate and maintain the Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) of Washoe County Nevada’s fixed-route bus service, RTC RIDE. The fixed-route bus network serves over seven million annual passengers, including over 20,000-weekday riders on 56 peak-operated vehicles.

RTC RIDE bus service comprises 27 routes. Vehicle operation, maintenance and repair, customer service, and workforce development and training are just a few of the services detailed in Keolis’ scope of work. Keolis employees have already been engaging with the community and taking steps to ensure a smooth transition ahead of services launching on July 1, 2019.

“Keolis and the RTC share a similar vision for the future of transportation in Washoe County; we see a system with tremendous potential and a partner with a willingness to incorporate innovative transportation solutions to make a positive and sustainable impact on the community,” said Keolis Transit America President & CEO Steve Shaw.

The RTC plans to eventually convert to an all-electric fleet, and incorporate new transportation modes into its network to improve and expand service offerings for the community. In close collaboration with the RTC, Keolis said it welcomes the opportunity to support the 2040 Regional Transportation Plan, which includes fostering safe and healthy communities, incorporating more sustainable transportation options, increasing passenger travel choices and supporting economic development, and diversification in Washoe County.
