Nevada Public Transit Home Page
Public transit in Nevada ranges from modern Bus Rapid Transit (BRT)
in urban areas to para transit buses providing service to the elderly and
disabled located in remote locations.
Larger transit systems,
operated under the Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPO), can be
found in urbanized areas of Nevada such as Las Vegas (Regional
Transportation Commision of Southern Nevada), Reno/Sparks (Regional
Transportation Commision of Washoe County), Carson City, and Lake
Tahoe. Outside of the urbanized areas, many Nevada residents depend
on rural transit systems for connection to the urbanized areas as
well as maintaining their quality of life. Buses in rural Nevada
provide more than 1 million rides and travel over 5 million
miles per year.
The NDOT Transit Section is responsible
for helping in the creation and continuation of these
services by administering the following Federal Transit
Administration (FTA) Grants on an annual basis: Elderly and
Disabled (5310), Rural and Small Urban (5311) and Bus and
Bus Facilities (5339).
