Public transit in Nevada consists of urban, small urban and rural transportation providers.  Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPO), provide transit services in large and small urbanized areas with populations of 50,000 or more.  Smaller local public bodies or human service organizations provide public transit in the rural areas.

There are four MPOs in Nevada; the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (Las Vegas), the Regional Transportation Commission of Washoe County (Reno), the Carson Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (Carson City), and the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency (Lake Tahoe Basin). 

Local public bodies and private nonprofit organizations provide transit services in rural and small urbanized areas with populations less than 50,000.

The Nevada DOT Multimodal Planning Transit Office provides operating, capital, and program administration funding assistance to rural public transit agencies and is responsible for state administration of the transit program, subrecipient oversight, and the approval of pass-through funding from the Federal Transit Administration (FTA).

The Nevada DOT conducts its activities through the use of an approved State Management Plan (SMP) which outlines the responsibilities of both the State and all program subrecipients.  The FTA requires that each state adopt policies and procedures contained within the SMP to administer these Federally-funded programs.
