For the upcoming Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday Monday, Jan. 18, the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC) will operate its fixed route transit system on a Sunday schedule. Transit customers can plan their trip using the free and easy-to-use rideRTC app.
The RTC will also be participating in this year’s Martin Luther King Jr. Day virtual parade at 10 a.m. Monday, Jan. 18, as our community celebrates the accomplishments of this civil rights icon. The virtual parade is accessible to everyone and can be streamed for free at https://kingweeklasvegas.com/.
“The RTC is proud to participate in celebrating the life and legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr.,” said M.J. Maynard, RTC chief executive officer. “We will continue to be a community partner in celebrating Dr. King’s achievements and others who support diversity, equity and inclusion for all.”
As riders plan ahead for their trips this holiday, the RTC would also like to remind customers about two new app-based safety features, including contactless, cash-to-mobile payment and real-time bus capacity tracking. Both features are aligned with the RTC’s 14-Point Safety Plan. For more information, visit rtcsnv.com.
