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, Reno/Sparks, 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.
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).
Through this grant funding, the NDOT Transit Section provides operating and
capital assistance to several rural and small urban transit operations
statewide including County Transit Providers, Indian Reservation Transit
Services, Non-Profit Transit Providers, Intercity Providers, Senior Centers,
and Non-Profit Rehabilitation Facilities.
general fixed route public transit, demand response para transit services,
