The Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada wants to hear from the public about proposed transit service changes.

These changes would occur beginning Nov. 6, and public comments addressing them will be accepted through Wednesday, Aug. 31, at 5:30 p.m.
Specific details on proposed service changes and community outreach activities are available online at rtcsnv.com and at the RTC Administration Building. Changes include the launch of Route 122 – South Maryland Parkway / Horizon Ridge, which will operate between the South Strip Transfer Terminal (SSTT) and the Green Valley Ranch / The District business area.
Additionally, Route 105 – Martin L. King will begin operating 24 hours; 14 routes will increase in service frequency; five routes will be modified; and 10 routes will have earlier morning or later evening service. The ADA Paratransit Service Area also will be adjusted to maintain the mandated three-quarters of a mile border on each side of the fixed route boundary.
The RTC is also conducting community outreach activities, including public meetings, to allow the general public to comment on the proposed service changes. The first meeting will be held Monday, Aug. 15, from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Bonneville Transit Center, 101 E.
