RENO, NV - If you ride RTC Ride buses, you should be prepared to make alternate transportation plans soon, just in case.
Sunday, members of Teamsters Local 533 voted no to an agreement with their employer, MV Transportation, which employs the drivers, mechanics and dispatchers for RTC Ride, though RTC itself was not part of the negotiations.
A tentative agreement was reached July 31st, but even though union leadership recommended the new deal, the employees said no.
RTC says no disruption in service is expected, and the current schedule is normal, but riders should plan ahead anyway while negotiations continue between MV and its employees.
This does not affect RTC Access, the paratransit service.
