A new RIDE transit schedule will become effective on Sunday, September 3, 2017. The RTC Board adopted the recommendations contained in the Short Range Transit Plan which will help to enhance transit service for our customers while keeping costs the same. Two routes with enhanced service include Route 13 that serves the Veteran’s Administration Medical Center and Route 2s which serves the Washoe County Senior Center located on 9th Street in Reno. There are a variety of minor adjustments to other bus schedules to enhance overall route performance. Route 18x and Route 14 are being discontinued due to low ridership and unproductive performance. The hours saved with the discontinuation of these routes will be reallocated to Route 13 and will have no impact on the transit program budget. New bus books will be available on August 28 and can be purchased for 50 cents. New route and schedule information will be available on-line on September 3. RTC RIDE customers can also call RTC Customer Service at 348-RIDE.
