The Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada made changes on its north Las Vegas Boulevard route that took effect Sunday.
The Metropolitan Area Express (MAX) will no longer operate, allowing more service to be added to Route 113 – Las Vegas Boulevard North, bringing Route 113 to frequent service standards.  Frequent service routes operate every 15 minutes, or better, on weekday afternoons and every 20 minutes, or better, during other daytime hours every day. RTC operates nine other routes at this service level.  

Route 113, in particular, will run every 15 minutes during daytime hours seven days a week.  Evening and overnight frequency will also increase.
Route 113 will serve previous MAX customers and additional stops. The boarding policy along Route 113 will also change to require customers at all stops to use front door boarding only and pay a fare or swipe passes when boarding.
The RTC expects the revised Route 113 to average about 8,300 boardings on weekdays, ranking the north Las Vegas Boulevard corridor as the eighth busiest corridor for transit in Southern Nevada.
Also on Feb. 21, slight timing changes will be effective for Route 212-Sunset on the 4:58 a.m. trip only.

Schedules and more information for all RTC transit routes are available at rtcsnv.com or in the RTC Transit Guide.
