Safety is the RTC's top priority, and for the 32nd year the RTC is providing everyone with a safe transportation option on New Year's Eve! All RTC transit services will be free from 6 pm on 12/31/16 to 2 am on 1/1/17. The RTC is reminding everyone to never drive while impaired and instead ride transit, take a cab or designate a driver. The RTC encourages pedestrians to be visible after dark by wearing bright cloths and carrying flashlights. Pedestrians should also obey traffic signals, cross at crosswalks and not be impaired.
Plan your trip at: http://www.rtcwashoe.com. Riders may also download NextBus, an app that enables passengers to know what time the bus arrives. The FREE app is available for Apple and Android devices. Keep in mind not all locations are served by transit.
The FREE service is sponsored by: Renown Health, KOLO 8, Wood Rodgers, Inc., Club Cal Neva, REMSA, Morrey Distributing, Reno Firefighters Local 731, Washoe County Honorary Deputy Sheriff’s Association, Reno-Sparks Convention and Visitors Authority, Cumulus Media, the Northern Nevada DUI Task Force, and the DJ Benardis Memorial Fund.
